PROCESS Selling Rules For Regular Verbs Most regular verbs simply add -ed and -ing to the simple form (base form). Examples: Listen listened listening Work worked working If a verb ends in a single vowel followed by a single consonant (VC), and the vowel has a strong stress, the final consonant is doubled before adding -ed or - ing. [Note: All words of one syllable have a strong stress on the vowel.] Examples: Stop stopped stoppingHOME NEXT
PROCESS In the case of verbs that end in -e, we only add -d to form the past tense, and we omit the -e before adding -ing. Examples: grate grated grating Hope hoped hopingHOME NEXT
PROCESS There are two rules for verbs that end in -y: a. If the verb ends in a vowel plus y (Vy), we simply add -s, -ed, or -ing. Example: Play plays played playing b. If the verb ends in a consonant plus y (Cy), we change the y to i and add -es or - ed. In the case of -ing, we do not change the y. Example: study studies studied studyingHOME NEXT
PROCESS Verbs that end in w, x, or y do not double the final consonant. Examples: box boxed boxing tow towed towingHOME ASSESMENT
