Review of Prefixes and Suffixes

1. An element that cannot stand free as a word and goes at the front of a word is called aprefix.

2. An element that cannot stand free as a word and goes at the end of a word is called asuffix.

3. Some of these words have both a prefix and a suffix. Some have just a prefix. Some have just a suffix. Analyze each word into its free base and any prefixes or suffixes it may have.

Word = Analysis
rebound = re + bound + s
monkeys = monkey + s
Unmixed = un + mix + ed
reviewed = re + view + ed
churches = church + es
quickest = quick + est
visiting = visit + ing
repays = re + pay + s
refueled = re + fuel + ed
undresses = un + dress + es
thoughts = thought + s
unsafe = un + safe
rebuilding = re + build + ing
reheated = re + heat + ed

4. Add these prefixes, words, and suffixes together to spell some longer words.

Prefixes, Words, and Suffixes = Longer Word
read + er = reader
ghost + s = ghosts
design + er + s = designers
re + light + ing = relighting
un + load + ed = unloaded
work + er + s = workers
young + est = youngest
show + ing + s = showings
re + do + ing = redoing
demand + ed = demanded
breathe+ ing = breathing
turtle + s = turtles
breath + less + ly = breathlessly
round + est = roundest
heat + er + s = heaters
