Hello! I have a question about silent e versus non-silent e. I know that the silent e is needed to keep a consonant from doubling in many words.
de + Scribe + ing -> describing
Vace + ant -> vacant
How do we (do we?) indicate that an <e> is not a silent e?
Arche + o + Graph + ic -> archeographic
Arche + o + Log(e) + y -> archeology
Is the string of consonants that would not double anyway what let’s us know the <e> is not a silent e?
Then what about a word like <coleoid>?
Cole + o + id -> coleoid?
