    Hi...
    My name is Carlos
    Could you help with the rules in order to differentiate the use of adjectives ending at ic or ical, like classic and classical

    IŽll be very thanked

    Re: ic / ical adjectives

    These are differenciated by meaning rather than by form, so the answer is, I'm afraid, in the dictionary rather than a rule.
