Verbs that end in a vowel and a consonant follow special rules.
FOR ONE-SYLLABLE VERBS:
1 vowel—>2 consonants (stop—> stopping)
2 vowels—>1 consonant (dream—> dreaming)
FOR TWO-SYLLABLE VERBS:
1st syllable stressed—>1 consonant (listening)
2nd syllable stressed—>2 consonants (preferring) POSSESSIVES

more frequently in informal English.
—This is the office of the attorney.
—>This is the attorney’s office.
