Rule 1: add ing to most words
    mail + ing = mailing carry + ing =carrying
  • always keep the y before adding the ing ending

Rule 2: if the word ends in e, drop the e and add ing
    ride + ing = riding     take + ing = taking

Rule 3: if the word is short and ends with a vowel/consonant, double the consonant and add ing
    stop + ing = stopping
    wrap + ing = wrapping

  • if a word has a double e, do not drop the second e
      See + ing = seeing
  • change ie to y before adding ing
      die + ing = dying
    note: the word die means to pass away and the word dye means to color
      dye + ing = dyeing
