This article is about accenting the ends of words. For the Teen Girl Squad running gag, see -'d.
The Cheat's attempt at -èd

Characters often replace -ed with -èd. In English, the grave accent indicates that a vowel that would usually be silent should be pronounced. Usually, this is a legitimate alternate pronunciation, but more often it is used to distinguish words with the same spelling but different meanings (such as "aged" for grow old or mature and "agèd" for the elderly), or to add a syllable to the word for poetic effect. However, the characters will usually use this different pronunciation at random times. For example, stripèd is pronounced /straɪ-pɪd/, as compared to the more usual /straɪpt/.
