What are Word Prefixes and Suffixes?

Word prefixes and suffixes are terms of grammar that can be added to the beginning or end of a word. They can change the meaning of a word and they can also change the part of speech.

The definition for a prefix is an affix that is placed before a word to modify its meaning, as un- before 'unhappiness' and inter- before 'interact'.

The definition for a suffix is an affix that follows a word, as -less in careless or -ly in quickly.


What is an Affix?

Affixes are letters, syllables, or groups of letters that are added to a base word to change its meaning or form a new word.

The word “case” can become “encase” by adding the affix “en-.”

Other examples of affixes include prefixes and suffixes.


Types of Word Affixes

A prefix is a letter placed at the beginning of a word to change its meaning. Prefixes are often used to create words that have a different connotation, such as un-American or pre-owned.

A suffix is a letter that is added to the end of a word to change its meaning.

Prefixes and suffixes can be used in addition to other root words in order to form new words. For example, "unsuccessful" contains both a prefix and a suffix.


How do you use a suffix?

Suffixes are letters or words that are added to the end of a word. They can change the meaning of the word, for example, the suffix ‘er’ is used to turn a noun into an adjective.

Some common suffixes are ‘-ed’, ‘-er’, and ‘-ly’. They are used to form different verb tenses, adjectives, and adverbs respectively.

Adding suffixes is an effective way to create new words or phrases that have different meanings.


How do you know what type of prefix or suffix to use?

This is a really good question. There are many types of prefixes and suffixes that can be used in a sentence. What you need to do is read the sentence carefully and think about what the author is trying to say. For example, if you are reading an essay on how to be healthier, then you might want to use a prefix or suffix that means 'unclean' or 'unhealthy'. If your sentence was about how to get rid of bugs, then you might want to use a word with a prefix or suffix like 'impossibly', 'undoubtedly', or 'banish'.
