Summary of Final <e> Deletion

1. Earlier you worked with the deleting final <e>'s in stems that end <ee>, <ie>, or <oe>:

a. We do not delete final <e> in stems that end <oe> when we add suffixes that start with an \begin{align*}<\text{i}>\end{align*} : toe + ing = toeing, not \begin{align*}^*\end{align*}toing.

b. We do not delete final <e> in stems that end <ee> when we add suffixes that don't start with an <e>: see + ing = seeing, not \begin{align*}^*\end{align*}seing.

c. We delete the final <e> and also change the \begin{align*}<\text{i}>\end{align*} to <y> in stems that end <ie> when we add suffixes that start with \begin{align*}<\text{i}>\end{align*}: lie + ing = l\begin{align*}\cancel{i} \cancel{e}\end{align*} + y + ing = lying.

2. Here is the Final <e> Deletion Rule as we have finally worked it out:

You delete a final <e> that marks a soft _______ or soft ______ only when you add a suffix that begins with the letters ______, _______, or ________; and except for a few words with stems that end <ee>, <ie>, or <oe>, you delete all other silent final <e>s whenever you add a suffix that starts with any _________.

3. Here are some stems and suffixes that give you a chance to practice the Final <e> Deletion Rule. Add the suffixes to the stems, and be sure that you show any final <e> deletions that take place. In the Word column write the word you form. In the Final <e> column write the number from the list below that best describes what the final <e> is doing in the stem:

  1. Marking or helping spell a long vowel
  2. Marking a soft <c> or <g>
  3. Marking a voiced <th>
  4. Insulating an \begin{align*}<\text{s}>\end{align*}, <z>, \begin{align*}<\text{u}>\end{align*}, or <v>
  5. Filling out a VCle pattern
  6. A fossil
