## Practice with Prefixes, Suffixes, and Bound Bases

1. Each of the following words contains a bound base. Some have two prefixes, some have only one. Some have two suffixes, some only one. Some of the prefixes and suffixes may be new to you, but you have worked with all of the bound bases. Analyze each word into all of its elements, and show any changes that take place when the elements combine:

Word = Analysis
suffering = sub\begin{align*}\cancel{b}\end{align*} + f + fer + ing
effective = ex\begin{align*}\cancel{x}\end{align*} + f + fect + ive
committee = com + mit + t + ee
prohibited = pro + hibit + ed
divorcing = dis\begin{align*}\cancel{s}\end{align*} + vorce\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ing
offering = ob\begin{align*}\cancel{b}\end{align*} + f + fer + ing
announcer = ad\begin{align*}\cancel{d}\end{align*} + n + nounce\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + er
unassuming = un + ad\begin{align*}\cancel{d}\end{align*} + s + sume\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ing
excessively = ex + cess + ive + ly
immigrate = in\begin{align*}\cancel{n}\end{align*} + m + migr + ate
correcting = com\begin{align*}\cancel{m}\end{align*} + r + rect + ing
included = in + clud\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ed
mispronounced = mis + pro + nounc\begin{align*}\cancel{e}\end{align*} + ed
disrespectfully = dis + re + spect + ful + ly
constructing = co\begin{align*}\cancel{m}\end{align*} + n + struct + ing
uncollected = un + co\begin{align*}\cancel{m}\end{align*} + l + lect + ed
misconceptions = mis + co\begin{align*}\cancel{m}\end{align*} + n + cept + ion + s
uncommitted = un + com + mit + t + ed
ineffectively = in + e\begin{align*}\cancel{x}\end{align*} + f + fect + ive + ly

Word Trace. In this trace you can combine prefixes and bound bases to make sixteen words. Remember that the boxes with rounded corners are condition boxes and that you can only go through a condition box if you satisfy the condition written in it. Watch for cases of assimilation.
