Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

## Review of Suffixes

1. A suffix is ____________________________________________________

____________________________________________________________

2. Each of the following words contains one or more suffixes. Sort them into the groups. Some words will go into more than one group:

$&\text{provokingly} && \text{consequently} && \text{expression} && \text{sketchily}\\& \text{occurrence} && \text{usual} && \text{rhythmically} && \text{profession}\\ & \text{collection} && \text{acquaintance} && \text{racial} && \text{recognizance}\\& \text{chemical} && \text{fictional} && \text{eventual} && \text{ecstatically}\\& \text{acquittal} && \text{consequence} && \text{defiance} && \text{two-dimensional}$

3. Analyze the following words into stem plus suffixes. Remember that some have more than one suffix. Be sure you show all of suffixes in your analyses, and show any changes that occur when elements are added together:

Word = Stem + Suffix or suffixes
provokingly = provok$\cancel{e}$ + ing + ly
occurrence = +
collection = +
rhythmically = +
acquittal = +
consequential = +
usual = +
defiance = +
sketchily = +
racial = +
eventual = +
recognizance = +
