Hi , I’m revising for my assessment tomorrow and just wanted to know what it’s called when a child adds an extra ‘ed’ to word for no reason? As in - “ teddy falled off chair”

That is an example of a virtuous error. It is a mistake in which the child applies general grammatical rules to the language's irregularities. It supports Chomsky's LAD theory. It is an overextension of grammatical rules in the utterance that one would perceive as logucal/plausible, despite the fact that it is actually invalid. These should be looked for when reading the transcript.
