6 © Boardworks Ltd of 32 -al and -ic suffixes

7 © Boardworks Ltd of 32 -al and -ic suffixes The vowel suffixes -al and -ic both change nouns into adjectives. When the root word ends in a consonant, the suffix is added to the end of the word. When the root word ends in a vowel or y, the last vowel is usually dropped before the suffix is added. Look at these adjectives. Can you spot which root word the suffixes have been added to? medical occasional dramatic horrific energetic

Press play to start the timer. actually especially eventually kindly weekly really Why do some of the words end -lly?

If the suffix begins with a vowel, the e is usually dropped. If the suffix begins with a consonant, the e remains. Words ending in a soft ce or ge usually keep the e before able and ous, e.g. knowledgeable, courageous. The e is dropped before adding the suffix. The e remains and the suffix is added.
