72 prepaid What is the base word? What does it mean? The prefix pre- means before.What does prepaid mean?
73 When I read a word like prepaid, I can figure out what it means by looking at its parts. I know pre- is a prefix. If I cover the prefix, I see the word paid.I know paid means "bought," or "gave money for." I also know pre- means "before.”So prepaid must mean bought before or ahead of time.Let me try that it in a sentence: My mother prepaid for the plane tickets. My mother bought the tickets ahead of time.That makes sense! I can do the same thing to figure out other words that begin with prefixes.
