6.4 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc Suffixes (i suffissi) are added to many Italian nouns and adjectives to denote affection, size, poor quality, ugliness, or other traits. As in English, adding a suffix can reflect the speakers feelings about a particular noun or the adjective used to describe it. For example, the two words, dog, cane, and doggie, cagnolino, demonstrate a difference that reflects the speakers perception (a doggie is cuter or more dear to the speaker than a dog). Suffixes
6.4 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc ATTENZIONE! Be very careful when using suffixes and try to use only those you have learned from native speakers or teachers. Adding them to words you are not sure of can lead to misunderstandings or even trouble if you are not absolutely certain of the meaning of the word that you have coined! For example, cagnolino means doggie but canino means canine tooth, and un mulo, a mule, is not related to un mulino, a mill. Suffixes

6.4 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc Some suffixes are pejorative, denoting ugliness, poor quality, or nastiness. -accio/a/i/e -astro/a/i/e -uccio/a/i/e una parola un poeta una casa una parolaccia un poetastro una casuccia a swear word a really bad poet a small, unassuming house Suffixes
6.4 © and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc ATTENZIONE! Sometimes a noun changes gender when a suffix is added.
