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 <e>, \underline{<i>} , or <y>; you delete all other silent final <e>s whenever you add a suffix that starts with any vowel.

That rule is also true for the final <e>'s that mark a voiced <th> or insulate <\mathrm{s}>, <z>, <\mathrm{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
advantag\cancel{e} + ed = advantaged
advantag\cancel{e} + ed = advantaged
advantag\cancel{e} + es = advantages
advantage + ous = advantageous
breath\cancel{e} + ing = breathing
bronz\cancel{e} + ed = bronzed
expensive + ly = expensively
nerv\cancel{e} + ous = nervous
argu\cancel{e} + ing = arguing
cloth\cancel{e} + ed = clothed
clothe + s = clothes
bath\cancel{e} + ing = bathing
squeez\cancel{e} + ing = squeezing
sneez\cancel{e} + ed = sneezed
choos\cancel{e} + y = choosy
wors\cancel{e} + en = worsen
claus\cancel{e} + s = clauses
gauz\cancel{e} + y = gauzy
nerve + s = nerves

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 = accord + ing
reserved = reserv\cancel{e} + ed
analyzing = analyz\cancel{e} + ing
achieved = achiev\cancel{e} + ed
glimpses = glimps\cancel{e} + es
accompanied = accompan\cancel{y} + i + ed
producer = produc\cancel{e} + er
appearances = appearanc\cancel{e} + es
mouser = mous\cancel{e} + er
expensive = expens\cancel{e} + ive
expensively = expensive + ly
starving = starv\cancel{e} + ing
dissolved = dissolv\cancel{e} + ed
voyaging = voyag\cancel{e} + ing
adventurous = adventur\cancel{e} + ous
affected = affect + ed
admiring = admir\cancel{e} + ing
addresses = address + es

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

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

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

reveres && reverse && severer

Teaching Notes.

Items 2 and 3. Be sure the students get the <e> deletion in clauses, glimpses, appearances.

Word Pyramid. Reserve contains letters for the following words: 6 letters: reeves, revere, server, severe; 5 letters: reeve, sever, veers, verse; 4 letters: errs, ever, eves, revs, seer, sere, veer, vees; 3 letters: ere, err, eve, rev, see, vee; 2 letters: es (plural of e, also spelled es), re.
