Double Letters

There is often a double letter at the end of a stressed syllable, fooling us into thinking there is a rule: However, around 1000 words don't behave the same, so it's easy to double a letter mistakenly, in words like these:

 
 
shoddy
holly
mammal
common
poppy
popper
mirror
 
 
 

 
 
body
holiday
camel
comic
copy
proper
miracle
