Inflections –ed & -ing

Structural Analysis:


sail ing sailing

chart ed charted

  • Each of these words begin with a root word. They are verbs.

  • The endings are added to the words to tell about an action that is ongoing-ingor to tell about the past-ed.


sail ing sailing

  • The base word sail is a verb.

  • Adding the ending (-ing) causes the word to tell about an action that is ongoing.

  • The ending -ing always forms its own syllable when it is attached to a root word (not in words such as sing and ring where it is part of the root word).


chart ed charted

  • The base word chart is a verb.

  • Adding the ending (-ed)causes the word to tell about a past action.

  • The ending (-ed) may or may not form its own syllable. Remember, in order for it to be a syllable it must have a vowel sound.


Examples:

If you are unsure of whether a word ending in –ed has an added syllable or not, try pronouncing it both ways to see which one sounds correct.


Try these.

Sort these into groups according to the number of syllables they have.

(Go in order left to right, top row first.)

Look in the story, “Nellie Bly: America’s Star Reporter.” Find five more words with the –edor –ingending. List the words, pronounce them, and sort them by the number of syllables.
