PREFIXES & SUFFIXES
PREFIXES and SUFFIXES create new words, usually by modifying or changing the meaning of aROOT WORD.If we take a root word like EMPLOY (verb) or HAPPY (adjective), we can see how their meaning changes.
*UN + employ + ED = UNEMPLOYED (the verb becomes an adjective with a negative meaning)
* happy + NESS = HAPPINESS (the adjective becomes a noun)
Pay attention to changes in SPELLING: – “y” often becomes “i” / final “e” often disappears (…)
1. PREFIXES like DIS/IN/IM/IR/UN/IL/MIS are used to give an opposite/negative meaning to a word.
Task: Find the opposites of the words on the right and write them down.
2. SUFFIXES can be used to form a verb, a noun, an adjective and an adverb.
*dark (adjective) + ness = darkness (noun)
*strength (noun) + en = strengthen (verb)
*probable (adjective) + (l)y = probably (adverb)
*glory (noun) + ous = glorious (adjective)
Task: Link the verbs with their correct suffix to form NOUNS and write them down. Follow the example and be careful with the spelling.
