This is by some way the longest of the lists and has been the most difficult to edit. Nearly all the pairs (2,420) arise from adding an inflection, past tense or past participle versus 3rd-person or plural, to the same stem. The pairs that are not just the result of adding an inflection (516) are listed separately at the beginning.
The /d/ sound may be spelled with <d>, <de> or <dd>. The /z/ sound has many spellings including <s>, <se>, <z>, <zz> and <ss> in scissors. Since some of these overlap with the spelling of /s/, there is plenty of potential for mispronunciation. Notice that the assimilations of /ndz/ to /nz/ amd /ldz/ to /lz/ make minimal pairs such as band/bands and wield/wields as well as band/banns and wield/wheels. The tongue has to pass through the /d/ position in moving from /n/ or /l/ to /z/.
Notice too how the homograph lead makes pairs with leas and Les and the homograph rowed makes pairs with rose and rouse.
The contrast is between a stop and a fricative, both voiced and in the same region of the mouth. Both sounds are widespread in many languages, so this is not a problem for learners.
Taboo word pairs are niggard/niggers, peed/peas, shagged/shags and weed/wees.
Interesting pairs include:
