Test Two

Each word is an instance of one of the three rules you've just studied. For each word, put a check in the proper column to indicate of which rule it is an instance:

Words Suffix -ity Rule \begin{align*}3^{\mathrm{rd}}\end{align*} Vowel Rule French Lemon Rule
1. analysis X
2. balance X
3. competitor X
4. legend X
5. precious X
6. symphony X
7. publicity X
8. schedule X
9. sublimity X
10. locality X

Teaching Notes.

Item 6. Students may wonder about symphony, since the short [i] is at the head of a VCC string rather than a shortened VCV string. Point out to them that all the \begin{align*}3^{\mathrm{rd}}\end{align*} Vowel Rule says is that if the third vowel back is stressed, it will be short, which it is in symphony.
