This week, we are going to explore another tricky word ending. This one is tricky because we have to choose if it’s ‘-ance’ or ‘-ence’.
First, we will look at 'ance' words.
What do you need to know?
- ‘-ance’/‘-ancy’ are used where the root word ends in ‘-ant’(observant/ observance, expectant/expectance).
- If the root word can add the ending ‘-ation’, then these words will usually take ‘-ance’/’-ancy’.
- If the related verb ends in ‘-y’, ‘-ure,’ ‘-ear’ or ‘-ate’, then the noun will take ‘-ance’.
Use the root words below and add the correct suffix.
