Continuing with Suffixes, today I will create an overview of suffix rules. The three suffix rules are: 1-1-1 Doubling Rule, E Drop Rule and the Y-Changing Rule. I will do an overview today, but go in depth in my next posts.
1-1-1 Doubling rule is: 1 syllable words ending in 1 consonant after 1 vowel, you double the final consonant before a vowel suffix.
Why double? Because doubling the consonant after the vowel keeps the vowel short.
E Drop Rule is: Words ending in e drop the e before adding a vowel suffix.
Y Changing Rule is: Words ending in y change the y to i if there is a consonant before the y
This is the overview of suffix rules I will be covering in the next three posts.
