what is the rule for fry - fries
cry - cries

  • English -

    he rule is that you change the "y" into "ies", well as far as i know that is the rule =)

  • English -

    Yes, that's right.

    Change the "y" to "i" and then add the ending -- but not all endings require this.

    fry - fries - fried -
    but frying

    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.
