This week we are looking at what happens when we add a suffix to words that end in 'fer'.
What happens when you add a suffix to the word prefer?
The rule for adding 'fer' is:
- The ‘r’ is doubled if the ‘-fer’ is still stressed when the ending is added’.
- The ‘r’ is not doubled if the ‘-fer’ is no longer stressed.
Have a go at adding suffixes to the words below and decide if the 'r' is doubled or not.
Tuesday - use the words below to create your own sentences with them in.
Test yourself, or ask some one to help you, using this week's words.
