More Practice With the Final <e> Deletion Rule

1. Final <e> Deletion Rule. You delete a final <e> that marks a soft <c> or soft <g> only when you add a suffix that begins with the letters _____, _____, or _____; you delete all other silent final <e>'s whenever you add a suffix that starts with any _______.

That rule is also true for the final <e>'s that mark a voiced <th> or insulate <\text{s}>, <z>, <\text{u}>, or <v>. For these final <e>'s are also deleted whenever you add a suffix that starts with any vowel.

2. Here are some free stems and suffixes for you to add together to practice your final <e> deletion rule. Show any changes:

Free Stem + Suffix Word
glimps\cancel{e} + ed = glimpsed
advantage + ed =
advantage + es =
advantage + ous =
breathe + ing =
bronze + ed =
expensive + ly =
nerve + ous =
argue + ing =
clothe + ed =
clothe + s =
bathe + ing =
squeeze + ing =
sneeze + ed =
choose + y =
worse + en =
clause + s =
gauze + y =
nerve + s =

3. Analyze each of the following into its free stem and suffix. Be sure your analysis shows any final <e> deletions that occurred when the suffix was added:

Word = Stem + Suffix
removed = remov\cancel{e} + ed
according = +
reserved = +
analyzing = +
achieved = +
glimpses = +
accompanied = +
producer = +
appearances = +
mouser = +
expensive = +
expensively = +
starving = +
dissolved = +
voyaging = +
adventurous = +
affected = +
admiring = +
addresses = +

4. Silent Final <e> Deletion Rule. You delete a silent final <e> that marks a ___________ or ___________ only when you add a suffix that begins with the letters <e>, <\text{i}>, or <y>; you delete all other silent final <e>'s whenever you add a ___________ that starts with any ___________.

Word Pyramid. The two-letter word in this Pyramid is a bit tricky.

If you scramble the letters in reverse various ways, you can spell three other seven-letter words. How many can you get?
