    I coached spelling bee teams for many years and also pronounced at our county spelling bee for even more years.

    I know of no rules that apply to those suffixes. There are no rules for -ant and -ent either. You'll need to memorize them by writing and saying them over and over. Flash cards help -- posting them all over your bedroom and on mirrors.

    Good luck -- and happy spelling!
