burned is past tense of burn and burnt is past participle
Here are some uses:
He burned my dinner yesterday.

Most often people will create the past tense version of burn since burnt sounds awkward. The grammatical distinction is close. Quick recall rule of thumb: the phrase " have" precedes the word burnt.
Or you could say 'I burned with envy at his skill with women, but by the time I achieved my aims I was all burnt up'.
It is just a word that can imply different meanings. Like, as of here late, hub-pages has "burnt" a lot of us with their new rules.
JThomp42, you are extremely prolific, but here I need to disagree. Passed tense would be : Hubpages has burned us... and Hubpages have burnt the connections for writers.
Thank you for the correction barbat. I have no idea what I was thinking. lol
JThomp42, I really, really had to think on this one for sure! I love these questions! They really make us dig into our English studies! See you on your next hub! Take care.
Since 'burned' is a noun and 'burnt' is an adjective, you can say this, "The stick that burned in the fire is now burnt."
I love that! Awesome sentence! (burnt is also past participle)
"Burned" is the original past tense and past participle of "burn", while "burnt" was introduced only in the 16th-18th centuries by British writers to replace words ending with "-ed" that were no longer pronounced as a separate syllable. Americans and Canadians initially followed suit but eventually revert to the original -ed forms, reserving "burnt" mainly for adjectival phrases, e.g. burnt steak. Notwithstanding, the two forms can be used interchangeably, whether in North America or in the UK.
In short, while both "burned" and "burnt" can be used interchangeably throughout the world, "burned" is preferred in North America, while "burnt" is preferred in the UK.
interesting....I was taught differently. I like that rule of thumb it is much easier! In English Lit and studies, we had to use both in different tenses. it was a huge deal to distinguish them.
I think, burned is the situation in which the sense of feeling is somehow remaining. Whereas in the situation of burnt, there is no hope of it.
Burned - To produce flames and heat; like Fires were burning all over the city.
Burnt- Damaged or injured by burning like Your hand looks badly burnt.
Hello Vellur. I went to the beach and received a sun burn. I burnt so badly I remembered the sensation of being burned like an egg frying on the sidewalk. More than likely if I had used sun screen I would have not burnt, but I was burned up about forgetting the sunscreen.
I decided to lay under the sun and then burned becoming burnt until like a red lobster. Later we went to Red Lobster and my skin burned as if on fire and the sea food was burnt beyond done. Overall I kinda' feel I got burned, so I did not tip the waitress.
Then, I realized that was not fair for her to be burnt because of the the poor job by the cook, so I tipped her a few saw bucks. Her service is not what burned me. So, I decided not burning her might mean next time she saw me she wouldn't have a memory of being burnt and then burn me. I would have got burnt up if that happen.
Overall, I am not sure of playing with those words is correct or not regarding grammar, yet the moral is to remember the sun screen and everything may just be cool instead of burnt too hot to handle and becoming burned.
Just kidding around,
thanks for the fun,
There is actually no diffrence between the two words. They both can be used as the second and third form of the verb "burn".
