Guia de como conjugar verbos em Inglês com -ING (SPELLING) + Exercícios e Respostas

Spelling of verbs +–ing

 

The spelling of the main verb doesn't normally change. All you need to do is add –ing to it.

E.g.: study – studying; work – working; start – starting.

 

However, there are some rules.


1. When the verb ends in –e, we drop the –e before adding –ing.

E.g.: dance – dancing; hope – hoping; write – writing.

 

2. When the verbs ends in –ee, just add –ing. 

E.g.: agree – agreeing; flee – fleeing; see – seeing.

 

3. When the verbs ends in –ie, change it to –y, and add –ing.

E.g.: die – dying; tie – tying; lie – lying.

 

4. When the verb (one syllable) ends in a vowel followed by a consonant(with the exception of w, x, and y), double the consonant.

E.g.: swim – swimming; sit – sitting; run – running.

Tip: CVC (consonant–vowel–consonant) – swim – the last three letters – wim – CVC. When you have this combination, double the last letter.

 

5. When the verb has this ending but is formed by two or more syllables, check the stress.

a. If the first syllable is stressed, just add –ing.

E.g.: answer – answering; offer – offering; listen – listening.

 

b. If the second syllable is stressed, double the consonant and add –ing.

E.g.: admit – admitting; prefer – preferring; begin – beginning.
