Prefixes and suffixes
Transcript of Prefixes and suffixes
e.g. care + ful = careful
But there are several important groups of words where the spelling of the root word changes when you add a suffix. There are rules to follow to avoid spelling mistakes:
'y' to 'i' rule
doubling letters rules
silent e rule e.g. extra + ordinary= extraordinary
mis + behave= misbehave You can create new words just like you can modify the appearance of your house, by adding prefixes at the beginning. You can also add extensions to the back of your house to change how you use it. This is one of the longest word in the English language. Can you spot the prefixes and suffixes?
