Some words with endings are easier to read when I figure out what the base word is. Sometimes I can just cover the ending to find the base word, but sometimes the base word was changed to add the ending. That's when I remember the rules for adding endings. If a word ends with one consonant and one vowel, double the final consonant. If a word ends with silent e, drop the e. If a word ends with y, change y to i before adding -ed, -er, or -est.
