The “Rabbit Rule” is a commonly taught spelling rule that addresses the double consonant in words like “rabbit” and “parrot.”
The middle consonant is usually doubled in words that meet three criteria:
1. The word has two syllables. 2. You hear a short vowel in the first syllable. 3. You hear one consonant sound between the first and second vowels.
