Lately, I've seen alot of people misspelling the past tense and passive
participle ending _-ed_ as **_-et_.
Now, I'm wondering a) if this really is a phenomenon on the rise, or if I've
just for no known reason only suddenly have begun noticing it, and b) if it is
representative of some dialect merging /d/ and /t/ finally - intervocalic
merger of them is common enough, of course.
PS To pretend this have some connection to conlanging, do consider this for
any Future English projects you've got going!
