4-2 He wasn’t perfect

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.

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.

I ended up repainting the kitchen


Knowing about these parts of words is useful for spelling because they help you break down longer words into smaller parts and they also give you clues about their meanings.

Prefixes

Prefix Meaning
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.
