Which is correct: Dryed or Dried
How to spell Dried?
Dryed is Incorrect
Dried is Correct
Think of the root word "dry" and simply add "ied" for the past tense.
"Dried" follows the regular rule for converting 'y' to 'ied' in verbs like 'try' to 'tried'.
The incorrect version "dryed" would imply the 'y' stays the same, which is not true for verbs ending in 'y'.
Remember similar verbs like 'fry' and 'fried'.
"Dried" rhymes with "cried," which also follows the 'y' to 'ied' conversion.
