The past tense,past events, and things were different in the past that simple past tense as an adjective,not the future tense, referring the matter to add --ed or ---d has to be learnt from the past times of English Grammar re:past tense.
(1)We simply add -ed to words ending in double consonants:-eg. add and hand (2) to those ending in w: eg. allow and (3) to those ending in single consonant preceded by double vowels: eg. appear and join.
(4) We only add -d to verbs ending in e:- eg. agree,change,complete,lie, where "chang+--ed"=by Rule (1) is incorrect,whilst "change+ -d"=by Rule (4) is correct!
(5)We double the final single consonant preceded by a single vowel before adding --ed:- eg.dig,drop,and fit;whilst "dwell+ed"=by Rule (1) is correct,while "dwelled"=by Rule (5) is incorrect!
Here are some more eg.in the 5 classifications for you to learn:-
Class(1) added, handed, jumped, talked, walked,
Class(3)appeared, joined, waited,
Class(4)agreed,behaved, cared, carried, changed, completed, cried, lied, replied, tied,
Class(5)digged, dropped, fitted, knitted, smelled, spelled,
So linguistic terms syntax is grammar which you learn in school.

"Digged" is the older past tense and past participle of "dig". The modern form "dug" is an innovation that has become standard.- http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/digged
