6EV Phonic spellings 11.11.13
11th November 2013
Words with AGE
The letter string AGE is usually pronounced with a long A phoneme, for example, rage and page. However, when AGE is added as a suffix (at the end of a word) it is often pronounced more like IDGE, for example, damage, shrinkage and anchorage. When ED is added to verbs ending in AGE, the letter string remains the same, for example, cage – caged. When ING is added, the E is removed, for example, damage – damaging.
