Bagaimana Cara Mengeja Present Continuous Tense

Posted in Bahasa Inggris Itu Menyenangkan by branata on Agustus 17, 2009

 

Kita menuliskan present continuous tense dengan menambahkan -ing pada base verb. Sederhananya, kita tinggal menambahkan saja, namun begitu ada kondisi yang perlu kita perhatikan dimana kita harus menyesuaikan penulisan base verb, kadang kita tambahkan atau kurangkan karakter dari base verb.

 

Basic rule

Just add -ing to the base verb:

work

>

 

working

play

>

 

playing

assist

>

 

assisting

see

>

 

seeing

be

>

 

being

Exception 1

If the base verb ends in consonant + stressed vowel + consonant, double the last letter:

s

t

o

p

 

consonant

stressed
vowel

consonant

(vowels = a, e, i, o, u)

stop

>

 

stopping

run

>

 

running

begin

>

 

beginning

Note that this exception does not apply when the last syllable of the base verb is not stressed:

open

>

 

opening

Exception 2

If the base verb ends in ie, change the ie to y:

lie

>

 

lying

die

>

 

dying

Exception 3

If the base verb ends in vowel + consonant + e, omit the e:

come

>

 

coming

mistake

>

 

mistaking
