7  Most words used in the English language today were not originally English.  These words were borrowed (taken) from other languages. The majority of English words have Latin or Greek origins.  It is helpful to know some of these origins or "roots" of English vocabulary.  It may be possible to guess the meaning of an unknown word when one knows the meaning of its root.  Knowing prefixes and suffixes can also assist in the process.

8  Most words are made up of various combinations of the following word parts: prefix, suffix, base word, and root.  Therefore, one way to determine a word’s meaning is to break down the word into its parts and figure out the meaning of each part.  video_id=126398&title=Prefixes__Suffixes__and_ Roots_Rap (Words Have Power) video_id=126398&title=Prefixes__Suffixes__and_ Roots_Rap

9  noun  a word having the same or nearly the same meaning as another in the language, as happy, joyful, elated.  A dictionary of synonyms and antonyms (or opposites), such as Thesaurus.com, is called a thesaurus.Thesaurus.com,thesaurus

10  noun  a word opposite in meaning to another.  Fast is an antonym of slow.

11  A base word is a complete word that can stand alone.  However, other words or word parts may be added to base words to form new words. › Pre+pay = prepay

12  The root is the part of the word that contains the basic meaning (definition) of the word.  The root is the base element of the word. A root can’t stand alone as a word. › Ex: struct

13  A prefix is a word element that is placed in front of a root or base word. A prefix changes the word's meaning or makes a new word.

14

15  A suffix is a word element that is placed after the root or base word.  The suffix changes the word's meaning as well as its function (use).

16  Prefixes and suffixes are called affixes because they are attached to a root.
