3 The Doubling Rule shop (base word) shop + ed = shopped shop + ing = shoppingThe last consonant in shop, p, was doubled before the endings were added. This happens in short-vowel words such as shop that end in just one consonant.If a one-syllable word ends with one vowel and one consonant, double the final consonant.
4 Dropping Rule like (base word) like + ed = liked like + ing = liking The e was dropped before these endings were added. This happens if a base word ends with e, and the ending starts with a vowel.If the base word ends with a sneaky e, drop the e and add –ed or –ing.
