英语词汇中，经常会出现两个看起来差不多的词，比如learned & learnt这两个词，那它们有啥区别呢?下面yjbys网小编和大家具体的分析下，希望对大家有帮助!
These are alternative forms of the past tense and past participle of the verb learn. Both are acceptable, but learned is often used in both British English and American English, while learnt is much more common in British English than in American English.
We learned the news at about three o'clock.
They learnt the train times by heart.
I burned/burnt the toast by mistake.
He dreamed/dreamt about his holiday.
Luke kneeled/knelt down to find his contact lens.
She spelled/spelt her surname an unusual way.
Leap, lean, spill, and others are also verbs of this type.
Learned(but not learnt) is also an adjective, pronounced as two syllables (lrn|d) rather than the one syllable verb (lnt or lnd). The adjective, when said of a person, means 'having acquired much knowledge through study'. It can also be used of objects, meaning 'showing, requiring, or characterized by learning; scholarly'.
She is a learned and respected teacher.
I read the report in an extremely learned journal.
