Assunto:  Seeing

Please, I really would like to know why when we add -ing on the verb see, it doesn´t lose the last "e" ....why not in see??????

If the verb ends in -e:

come => coming

have => having

bathe=> bathing


But here they end in -ee:

flee => fleeing

see => seeing


and notice how be bevahes:


be => being
