I would apprciate to know if the "e" in "sue" is a hard (stressed) or soft "e" and what there is the present participle of the verb "To sue"
Thank you very much,
The grammar rule is in the case of "to sue" the "e" being silent, we then consider it like a verb such as "to believe" whereby the "e" is silent (mute) we delete the "e" and add "ing" for the present participle getting "believing".
It is the same rule with "sue" where 'e' is soft (mute) then su + ing = suing.
Thanks for the quick answer. I needed that info for two of my students to whom I said I would get the answer to this (sue + ing).
Of course it's suing sorry, sometimes I think I am too old.
