A root is the basic meaning part of a word. It carries the most important part of the word’s meaning. Roots of English words often come from other languages, especially Latin. The root usually needs a prefix or suffix to make it into a word. Prefixes and suffixes are affixes, meaningful word parts that can be added to roots and base words A prefix is a meaningful word part that can be added to the beginning of a root or a base word A suffix is a meaningful word part that can be added to the end of a root or a base word
Con- : “with, together” In- : “into” ; “toward” ; “not” Con + rupt = Corrupt Con + mune = Commune
If a root begins with the letter b or p, the last letter of the prefix con- or in- changes to an m Con + bine = Combine In + port = Import Combine It: Prefixes and Roots Please turn to workbook page 119 Read each prefix and root Underline the last letter of the prefix Underline the first letter of the root and write it on the line Decide if the last letter of the prefix should change to the first letter of the root or to m Combine the prefix and the root, write it on the line
