PREFIXES - Meanings

Post  Vincent Law on Thu Nov 29, 2012 10:36 am

A prefix is a letter or a group of letters that has special meaning and appears in front of a word.
Prefixes are added to some root words to create new words. Words do not always have a prefix. By learning some key prefixes you will learn the meanings of many words without using a dictionary. Sometimes you may recognize a letter or group of letters as a prefix, but find that it does not carry the meaning of the prefix. For instance, look at the word internal. It has nothing to do with the prefix "inter," which means between.

What is a prefix?
A prefix (affix) is a word, or letter(s) placed at the beginning of another word (a base word) to adjust or qualify its usage or meaning.
