## Review of Word Analysis and of <l> Before <E>

1. Analyze the following into their prefixes, bases, and suffixes:

Word = Analysis
decongestant = de + co$\cancel{m}$ + n + gest + ant
infections = in + fect + ion + s
digestion = di$\cancel{s}$ + gest + ion
excessive = ex + cess + ive
effectiveness = e$\cancel{x}$ + f + fect + ive + ness
interview = inter + view
massive = mass + ive
dimension = di$\cancel{s}$ + mens$\cancel{e}$ + ion
surprising = sur + pris$\cancel{e}$ + ing
director = di$\cancel{s}$ + rect + or
interrupted = inter + rupt + ed
dividing = di$\cancel{s}$ + vid$\cancel{e}$ + ing
unsuspectingly = un + su$\cancel{b}$ + spect + ing + ly
survival = sur + viv$\cancel{e}$ + al
perspective = per + spect + ive
interpret = inter + pret
unattractively = un + a$\cancel{d}$ + t + tract + ive + ly
synchronize = syn + chron + ize
interestingly = inter + est + ing + ly
surrounded = sur + round + ed
disrupted = dis + rupt + ed
surveillance = sur + veill + ance

2. Underline the <ie> and <ei> spellings:

$& \text{bel\underline{ie}ve} && \text{l\underline{ie}} && \text{th\underline{ie}f} && \text{fr\underline{ei}ght} && \text{r\underline{ei}ndeer}\\& \text{calor\underline{ie}} && \text{magp\underline{ie}} && \text{t\underline{ie}} && \text{h\underline{ei}ght} && \text{s\underline{ei}smic}\\& \text{coll\underline{ie}} && \text{mov\underline{ie}s} && \text{y\underline{ie}lding} && \text{kal\underline{ei}doscope} && \text{s\underline{ei}ze}\\& \text{f\underline{ie}ld} && \text{n\underline{ie}ce} && \text{conc\underline{ei}t} && \text{l\underline{ei}sure} && \text{sl\underline{ei}gh}\\& \text{f\underline{ie}ry} && \text{prair\underline{ie}} && \text{dec\underline{ei}ving} && \text{n\underline{ei}ther} && \text{sl\underline{ei}ght}\\& \text{financ\underline{ie}r} && \text{pr\underline{ie}st} && \text{\underline{ei}ght} && \text{prot\underline{ei}n} && \text{v\underline{ei}l}\\& \text{gr\underline{ie}f} && \text{rel\underline{ie}f} && \text{\underline{ei}ther} && \text{rec\underline{ei}pt} && \text{v\underline{ei}n}\\& \text{hyg\underline{ie}ne} && \text{shr\underline{ie}k} && \text{polterg\underline{ei}st} && \text{rec\underline{ei}ve} && \text{w\underline{ei}rd}$

3. Sort the words with <ie> into this matrix:

Words in which the <ie> is . . .
an instance of the $<\mathrm{i}>$ before <e> rule: a holdout to the $<\mathrm{i}>$ before <e> rule:
Words in which the <ie> spells long <e>

believe

calorie

collie

field

grief

hygiene

movies

niece

prairie

priest

relief

shriek

thief

yielding

financier
Words in which the <ie> spells long $<\mathrm{i}>$

lie

magpie

tie

fiery

4. Sort the words with <ei> into this matrix:

Words in which the <ei> is . . . Words in which the <ei> is . . .
an instance of the $<\mathrm{i}>$ before <e> rule: a holdout to the $<\mathrm{i}>$ before <e> rule:
Words in which the <ei> spells long $<\mathrm{a}>$

eight

freight

reindeer

sleigh

veil

vein

Words in which the <ei> spells long <e>

conceit

deceiving

receipt

leisure

protein

seize

weird

Words in which the <ei> spells long $<\mathrm{i}>$

either

poltegeist

height

kaleidoscope

neither

seismic

sleight

Teaching Notes.

Item 1. Four words in this table contain the prefix sur- “over,above,inaddition”:surprising, survival, surrounded, surveillance . Some students may want to treat the <sur> in surrounded as an assimilated sub-. I believe I would not call them wrong: The contribution of the prefix to the meaning of the word is somewhat distant at best. The other three have to be treated as sur- rather than an assimilated sub- because their stems do not start with letters or sounds that would induce assimilation of the $<\mathrm{b}>$ to <r>.

Item 4. We sort either and neither as instances, with <ei> spelling $[\bar{\mathrm{i}}][$. For folks who pronounce these two with $[\bar{\mathrm{e}}]$ rather than $[\bar{\mathrm{i}}]$, they would have to be sorted as holdouts with <ei> spelling $[\bar{\mathrm{e}}]$ with no preceding <c>. We sort leisure as a holdout with <ei> spelling $[\bar{\mathrm{e}}]$. For folks who pronounce leisure with short rather than long <e>, there is no place in the matrix to put it, so it would be left out.
