Synonyms of "Preferred" and their differences

Q: Jaka jest różnica między preferred i prefered ?
A: ,Hello, "preferred" is the correct spelling while "prefered" is wrong.

There is a simple rule to explain why. When you add the suffix - ed or - ing to a multisyllabic word and the stress is in the last syllable, then the last letter of the word is doubled.

In "prefer", the last syllable (-fer) is stressed, so you have to add a second r to "preferred" and "preferring".

I hope that helps
Q: Jaka jest różnica między preferred i preferable ?
A: The short answer is that preferred is past tense, so it means that someone already did the preferring in the past. Preferable is sort of future tense. It means that someone would probably like to prefer that thing in the future.

Here is an explanation I found on a website that might help you:
https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/128996/how-would-one-know-when-to-choose-preferred-or-preferable#:~:text=It%20does%20not%20mean%20%22has,the%20action%20to%20prefer%20it.



Common usage finds these words are used interchangeably, but there is a subtle difference.

The suffix "-able" means capable or worthy of being acted on. It does not mean "has been acted on".

So "preferable" means capable or worthy of being preferred. But it does not necessarily mean that someone has taken the action to prefer something.

If something is "preferred" (which is past tense), it means that someone has taken the action to prefer it.

As an example, a housing developer may know from past experience that homes facing the waterfront have been preferred. (In the past, it has been the orientation of choice.) Knowing this would lead the developer to conclude that new homes built facing a waterfront would be preferable.
Q: Jaka jest różnica między preferred i preffering ?
A: Present: prefer
Past: preferred

Ex) I prefer hot coffee rather than hot chocolate. (Present tense)
Ex) Jay prefers hot chocolate rather than hot coffee. (Present tense)

Ex) Lay preferred hot coffee rather than hot chocolate. (Past tense)
Ex) Lay used to prefer hot coffee rather than hot chocolate. (the word “used to” changes the word “prefer” into past tense”)

“Preferring” comes from the same word. You just wouldn’t normally use it on a daily conversation.

Ex) We read and studied indoors, preferring the sunny outdoor environment.

I guess this sounds more like a narrative. That’s when you will see lots of words with the “ing” ending.

Both “preferred” and “preferring” have the same meaning, just used in different situations
