4.2.1.1.3 Written irregularly, minimal difference in pronunciation

We would like to give some examples for possible changes. There are too many of them that we cannot give them all. However, we are sure that it will be easily learned, because soon it feels natural to you to do it this way. One of the possible changes is the sound of the vowel:

tubby e to open e

Usually there is one t that is doubled, after which the tubby e is changed to an open, bright e.

  Examples          
jeter to throw projeter to project cacheter to seal

  tu jettes you throw tu projettes you project tu cachettes you seal
