Hello my friend.
It’s time to stop asking and learn new words to improve our vocabulary learning the meaning of certain words. There are certain particles that if you write them before a word, they change the meaning of it. These particles are the prefixes and suffixes. This time let see the prefixes.
Some words (root words) can have words or parts of words added to the beginning or end that change their meaning.
If you add parts of words to the beginning of a word, it is called a prefix.
If you add parts of words to the end of a word, it is called a suffix.

|un-||means not or the opposite of the rest of the word: eg uneaten means not eaten|
|dis-||also means not: eg disagreed means not agreed|
|re-||means again: eg redone means done again|
|pre-||means before e.g. predate means to come before|
Practice them and these particles will be very useful for you.
See you next time.
