    Question Preffered vs. Prefferable?

    'Those countries are preffered/prefferable in exporting shrimps.'

    Which word is suitable in the sentence above do you think?
    In my opinion, it should be prefferable.

    Hi, devonpham.

    The words are "preferred" and "preferable".

    It's impossible to make good judgment with such a limited context. Could you give some more of it? The two words can often be used interchangably.

    Well, I have one sample only. But if you said that the two words are possible in that case, I will listen to you then! :)

    Either word gives a correct sentence, but in some contexts you couldn't use "preferable". That's why I asked you to provide the context.
