How to use prefixes and suffixes
A base word is a word that can stand alone and has a meaning.
Prefixes and suffixes are word parts that are added to words. They have different meanings so it’s important to learn them.
A prefix is a word part added to the beginning of a word or base word. It changes the meaning of the word.
Here are some examples of prefixes:
- Auto- ⟶ self
- Bi- ⟶ two
- Inter- ⟶ between
- Mis- ⟶ wrong
- Pre- ⟶ before
- Un- ⟶ not
