What are Root words?
Affixes are categorized into two branches: prefixes (at the beginning of a word) and suffixes (at the end of words).
Root words are word parts with origins in another language. They are the foundation or the core of words.
What are base words?

Base words cannot be reduced into smaller word parts.
Knowledge of roots and affixes allows readers to decipher the meaning of words.
