Adding vowel suffixes (-ing and -ed)

 

keep-calm-and-look-for-a-suffix

Double the consonant when adding –ing or –ed if the vowel is short/weak and there is only 1 consonant after it in the root word.

e.g. trip-tripped

 

Change the y to an I before adding –ed when there is a consonant before the y in the root word.

e.g. hurry-hurried

 

If the root word end in an e remove it before adding –ing or –ed

e.g. choke-choked

take-taking
