what is the rule for fry - fries
cry - cries
he rule is that you change the "y" into "ies", well as far as i know that is the rule =)
Yes, that's right.
Change the "y" to "i" and then add the ending -- but not all endings require this.
fry - fries - fried -
This works for most words ending in "y" -- but there are some exceptions. Here are two:
pay - pays - paid - paying
say - says - said - saying
A dictionary will usually tell you how to form the different parts.
