If the base form ends in a silent -e, drop the -e before adding -ing and -ed inflections:

create/creating
type/typing
shake/shaking
For one-syllable verbs ending in -ye, -oe, or -nge, keep the -e before -ing, but drop it before -ed

dye -- dyeing/dyed
hoe -- hoeing/hoed
singe -- singeing/singed
If the base form ends in -ie or -ee, just add -d to make the past tense or past participle.

die/died
disagree/disagreed
