Review of Suffixes

1. A suffix is a bound element that is added to the end of stems

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:

\begin{align*}& \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}\end{align*}

Words with the suffix ...
-al -ance -ence -ial
chemical acquaintance occurrence racial
acquittal defiance consequence
fictional recognizance
rhythmically
ecstatically
two-dimensional
Words with the suffix ...
-ic -ion -ly -ual
chemical collection provokingly usual
rhythmically fictional consequently eventual
ecstatically expression rhythmically
profession sketchily
two-dimensional ecstatically

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\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ing + ly
occurrence = occur + r + ence
collection = collect + ion
rhythmically = rhythm + ic + al + ly
acquittal = acquit + t + al
consequential = consequ + ent + ial
usual = us\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ual
defiance = def\begin{align*}\cancel{y}\end{align*} + i + ance
sketchily = sketch + \begin{align*}\cancel{y}\end{align*} + i + ly
racial = rac\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ial
eventual = event + ual
recognizance = recogniz\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ance
