ThreeBlessings Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 Would YOU keep or drop the e in these words when adding the suffix -able? I know the rule drop the final e when adding a suffix with a vowel. I looked up these words and it seems most are correct either way. I'm just curious how other people spell them. Some of these I drop the e, some I don't. I suppose I will teach the kids to spell them the same way I do, but I'm wondering if there is any general consensus on how to spell them? bite shake move hate live name rate size sale rope For the most part find myself wanting to keep the final e with these words when they have a long vowel. Here's how I spell them: biteable shakeable movable hateable livable nameable rateable sizable saleable ropeable Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
