    Question root - suffix - ending

    I have a question:
    To divide the word running morphologically.

    run - n - ing


    run = root
    ing
    = ending
    So, what is the second t ?
    I need a notion for it.

    It is a spelling matter - see here: Spelling Words with Double Consonants

    Anglika I know all these rules (Words with Double Consonants). This is General Grammar.
    I need a (morphological) notion for this case.

    When dividing a word, we have prefix - root - suffix - ending (that is a kind of suffix)
    I wanted to know this second Consonant refers to the root or is it a suffix ?

    running

    runn = root
    ing = ending

    run = root
    n = suffix
    ing = ending

    Suffix is the part of the word that comes after the root.
    So, the second - n - comes after the root run, or it is a part of it?
    Or may be there is a special term for it.
