Spelling Homework 18.10.21

 

Spelling Rule: Prefixes

 

Why do we have this rule? 

If the 'fer' syllable is stressed, double the last letter before adding suffix. E.g. In the word prefer, the syllable fer is stressed so when adding suffixes –ing or –ed, the r letter is double.

If the 'fer' syllable is not stressed, you just add the suffix.

 

Word list: 

offering,

suffered,

offered,

preferred,

preferring,

referred,

referral,

referring,

preference,

reference,

referee.
