More Practice with [t] Spelled \begin{align*}<\mathrm{tt}>\end{align*}<tt>

1. The following words all contain the sound [t] spelled \begin{align*}<\mathrm{tt}>\end{align*}<tt> because of either simple addition, twinning, or assimilation. Analyze each word to show where the two <t>'s come from:

Word = Analysis Reason
regretting = re + gret + t + ing Twinning
attractive = a\begin{align*}\cancel{d}\end{align*}d + t + tract + ive Assimilation
quitter = quit + t + er Twinning
attendance = a\begin{align*}\cancel{d}\end{align*}d + t + tend + ance Assimilation
outtake = out + take Simple Addition
attempted = a\begin{align*}\cancel{d}\end{align*}d + t + tempt + ed Assimilation
committee = com + mit + t + ee Twinning
attends = a\begin{align*}\cancel{d}\end{align*}d + t + tend + s Assimilation
cattails = cat + tail + s Simple Addition
submitting = sub + mit + t + ing Twinning
regretted = re + gret + t + ed Twinning
fatter = fat + t + er Twinning
attention = a\begin{align*}\cancel{d}\end{align*}d + t + tent + ion Assimilation
rattrap = rat + trap Simple Addition
fattiest = fat + t + \begin{align*}\cancel{y}\end{align*}y + i + est Twinning

Word \begin{align*}\#1\end{align*}#1

Is the vowel in

long or short?

Word \begin{align*}\#2\end{align*}#2

Is the vowel in

Word Find. This find contains the following twenty words that all have [t] spelled \begin{align*}<\mathrm{tt}>\end{align*}<tt> because of the VCC pattern:

\begin{align*}& \text{attack} && \text{critter} && \text{flutter} && \text{motto} && \text{putty} \\ & \text{attic} && \text{ditto} && \text{ghetto} && \text{otter} && \text{regatta} \\ & \text{bottom} && \text{ditty} && \text{lettuce} && \text{pattern} && \text{tattoo} \\ & \text{cotton} && \text{flattery} && \text{matter} && \text{petty} && \text{utter} \end{align*}attackatticbottomcottoncritterdittodittyflatteryflutterghettolettucemattermottootterpatternpettyputtyregattatattooutter

In nineteen of the words the \begin{align*}<\mathrm{tt}>\end{align*}<tt> is due to the VCC pattern. In one word it is due to assimilation. Which word is that? attack
