The verb is 捨てる, so its て-form is 捨てて, hence the compound form Vて+しまう becomes 捨ててしまう. If it were the casual ちゃう instead of しまう that you were using, that starts from the て-form too, but also contracts the て, so it would instead be 捨てちゃう, with just the one て. Perhaps that is where the confusion arose? Hope that helps!


辞書形, in fact, is part of 普通形, which consists of four different forms, including the 〜た form (past affirmative), the 〜なかった form (past negative), the ~ない form (nonpast negative) and finally the root form, a.k.a. 辞書形 (nonpast affirmative).

It's important to recognize a few things about the purported 未然形 of ~い adjectives. All of the ~か~ forms are derived by contraction of ~く as the basic adverbial form + あ~ from あり (modern ある). This is sometimes called the カリ活用 (kari conjugation) pattern. よく + あった → よかった As such, any 未然形 of an ~い adjective is actually the 未然形 of あり, which is あら. Looking more ...
