Language Review Root, Prefix and Suffix An English word can be made up of three elements: the root, a prefix and a suffix. *The part of the word that contains the basic meaning is called the Root (e.g. act, form, and test). It is the foundation of the word. *The word part that is placed in front of a root is called a Prefix. (e.g. “re” + act = react < “re” means “back” or “again”). The prefix can change the meaning of the root word and makes a new word. *The part of the word that is placed after the root is called Suffix (e.g. re+ act + =reaction < the suffix “-ion” indicates that the word has turned into a noun.

Activity 1 and suffixes are called affixes because they are connected to a root. ***Prefixes

Activity Look at the words and determine if the affix is a prefix or a suffix e.g.

Manageable

-able

1. resistance

2. unicycle

3. multicolored

4. wishful

5. brotherhood
