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.
