Why isn't 'x' doubled in 'annexed'? I must have forgotten some part of the rule.

I don't know any verb that doubles its -x before -ing or -ed... Emotion: tongue tied . Moreover, it's the first syllable that's stressed, not the second, so...

According to:

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?dict=CALD&key=2989&ph=on

it's the second syllable stressed. For some reason I thought 'x' should be soubled :-S

Thanks, Anne.
