English accent and usage. I am Dr. Frank Gerace. Let me give you two simple rules:
One rule is: If a word ends in Y, like lady, baby, country. When you have two babies or two ladies, you change the Y to I and add ES to make the plural.
Another simple rule is IE, many words like: believe, thief, grieve, are spelled IE, but some are spelled EI. How do you know? The rule is: I before E except after C or when sounded as A, as in neighbor, and way. So the common word, receive is: r-e-c-e-i-v-e. These two rules may help you.
