List of Golden Rules on Spelling Correction in English Grammar:
Dear Readers, Here we have given the List of 10 Golden Rules on Spelling Correction in English Grammar. Kindly make use of it.


Rule 1:  When the suffix “full” is added to a word, one “ I” is removed.
Eg:
·        Use + full= useful
·        Faith + full = faithful

Rule 2: If the word to which the suffix “full” is added ends in “ll”, one “I” is removed from the word also.
Eg:
·        Will + full= wilful
·        Skill +full = skilful

Rule 3:  Words of two or three syllables ending in single vowel + single consonant double the final consonant if the last syllable is stressed.
Eg:
·        Permit + ed = permitted
·        Control + ed =controlled
·        Occur + ing =occurring
·        Begin + ing = beginning

Rule 4:  Consonant ‘I’ is doubled in the words ending in single vowel + “I” before a suffix beginning with a vowel
Eg:
·        Quarrel + ed = quarrelled
·        Travel + er = traveller
·        Signal + ing = signalling
·        Repel + ent = repellent

Rule 5: Words ending in silent “e”, drop the “e” before a suffix beginning with a vowel

·        Live + ed = lived
·        Drive + er = driver
·        Tire + ing= tiring
·        Hope + ing = hoping

Rule 6: If the suffix begins with a consonant “e” is not dropped
Eg:
·        Sincere + ly= sincerely

But,
·        Nine + th = ninth
·        Argue + ment = argument

·        Vice + ous= vicious

Rule 10: When the suffix “ing” is added to a word ending in “ie”, “ie” is changed to “y”.
