Diagrams for "Word Formation" in FCE and CAE

  1. 1. Word Formation in FCE and CAE • First Certificate in English (FCE) and Certificate in Advanced English (CAE) from Cambridge are composed of different parts, one of them is “Use of English” where there are several exercises, one of which is “Word Formation”. • This presentation is focused on this part; “Word Formation”. – It consists of a text with some gaps, where we have to write the appropriate word based on the given one. The word given is from the same family and we have to add suffixes and/or prefixes to fit into the text.
  2. 2. Word Formation in FCE and CAE • The diagrams that I designed help us find possible suffixes or prefixes. Taking into account that I do not show all the possibilities, I have summarized using the most common ones. – You have to recognize the grammatical form (adjective, verb, etc.) of given and missing word, and after you have to follow the arrow, there you find some possible suffixes and prefixes. • I will be really grateful if you send me any comment or suggestion. You can contact me by e-mail, Twitter, Linkedin, Slideshare or wherever you can find me. – E-mail: rosarudomaune@gmail.com – Twitter: https://twitter.com/rrudo – Linkedin: http://www.linkedin.com/in/rrudo – Slideshare: http://www.slideshare.net/rosarudo • I hope it will help you to pass your exam!
