*See Exercise 281, page 86. Note that adjectives formed from English words by suffixing able or ible, as readable from read, commonly prefer the form able. Those from Latin end in able or ible, according as they end in abilis or ibilis in that language.

Why, in the plural of cherry (cherries), is y changed into i, and not in chimneys? See Rules XII and XIII, pages 69 and 70.

*What is the general Rule for the insertion of the hyphen in compound words? See note, page 75. What, for accenting them? See page 80.

Why, in forming effaceable from efface, is not the final e in the latter dropped? See Exercise 224, and the second note on page 68.

On the sound of p, in the words cupboard and clapboard, see page 9.

* Cancellation, if formed from cancel, by adding the suffix ation, might pass for an exception to Rule VIII, page 63, and be set down among the list of exceptions, like crystalline, metallic, etc., as in Exercise 210. But, in reality, none of this class of words form exceptions to the rule, if we consider that in the languages whence they come to us (Latin, through the French and the Greek), the 7 is doubled already. But for the merely English scholar, they are exceptions, and for convenience, may be so treated.

In re-spelling words from the French, we employ the combination ng (as in ad-de-kong), merely to indicate the nasal sound heard in pronouncing the syllables, an, en, on, etc., in that language.

On the spelling of the plurals of words ending in o, see note, page 73.
