What is the DGE spelling rule?

What is the DGE spelling rule?

when you hear the /j/ sound at the end of a syllable AND it is immediately preceded by a short vowel, it is spelled -dge. If there is a consonant or vowel team before the /j/, it is spelled -ge. J will never come at the end of a word and dge will never come at the beginning.

What syllable type is DGE?

The “dge” Rule: In a one syllable word, containing one short vowel which is directly followed by the /j/ sound, “dge” is used (e.g. “badge”, “hedge”, “dodge”), otherwise use “ge”. one consonant, double the final consonant (e.g. fatter, running, hidden).

Why do we use DGE?

Use -dge to spell the sound /j/ immediately after the short vowel in a one-syllable word. Like the -tch Spelling Rule, the -dge Spelling Rule does not apply to words with other vowel sounds or words where there is another consonant before the /j/ sound.

Why is the D in DGE silent?

Take a look at the dge phonogram in the word bridge (or any dge word). The d acts as a “buffer” so Silent E doesn’t make the vowel long. The d protects the vowel from Silent E.

Why does DGE have ad?

These words are most often Anglo-Saxon. I like to refer to the “-dge” making the /j/ sound as being a part of the Soldier Rule (This rule simply states that the “d” is the soldier that stands silent protecting the short vowel sound in the middle from the big “ge” at the end of the word).
