The article presents an experimental study of the perception of past tense regular verbs by Bulgarians learning English in cases of sandhi elision of the marker. The experiment was carried out at two levels (advanced and beginning) in a total of six groups, with three students at every level. The results, subjected to a three-factor dispersion analysis at the Laboratory of Experimental Linguistics at the Institute for Foreign Students, show that the percentage of the correctly determined verb forms is lower in cases of marker elision than in cases of its pronunciation.
