Study the word list: Doubling consonants or not!

If the last syllable of a word is stressed and ends with one consonant letter which has just one vowel letter before it, the final consonant letter is doubled before any ending with a vowel letter is added. The consonant letter is not doubled if the syllable is unstressed.
