Unit 8 – Long, Long Ago Vocabulary - Prefixes
What is a prefix?  A prefix is a group of letters which you can add to the  beginning  of a root word to change the meaning of the word.   E.g.  mis  + fortune =  mis fortune For example, ' comfort ' is a root word. By adding the prefix 'dis‘, you can make a new word 'dis comfort '
Prefix meanings   Every prefix has a meaning, for example: The prefix  'un'  means 'not' The root word  'clear'  means 'bright', 'free from difficulty' un  +  clear  =  unclear  which means 'not clear' or 'dim', 'difficult to see or understand'
Here are some examples of prefixes and their meanings  Means under e.g. ' sub way' means 'a way under the ground' sub Means 'wrong' or 'badly' e.g. ' mis spelled' or  mis spelt means 'wrongly spelled mis Meaning Prefix
Here are some examples of prefixes and their meanings  Means not (there are also several other prefixes which mean not) e.g. ' un hurt' means 'not hurt' un Means 'before in time', 'in front of' or 'superior' e.g. ' pre packed' means 'packed before' pre Meaning Prefix
Adding prefixes to root words  Generally when you add a prefix to a root word the spelling of the prefix and the root words stays the same  invisible = visible + in misfire = fire + mis bicycle = cycle + bi immature = mature + im unkind = kind + un Word = Root word + Prefix
Adding prefixes to root words  2. With some root words more than one type of prefix  may be added to give the word different meanings.   reappear  (means to appear again) = appear + re disappear (means to no longer appear, or cease to appear) = appear + dis Word = Root word + Prefix
Adding prefixes to root words  3. Sometimes you can add more than one prefix  to a word at the same time.   re Prefix + + rediscover = cover + dis Word = Root word + Prefix
Prefixes meaning 'not'  un  means not e.g.  'un hurt' means 'not hurt‘  im  means not e.g.  'im polite' means 'not polite‘ Il  means not e.g. ' il legal' means 'not legal‘ In  means not e.g.  'in formal' means 'not formal‘ Ir  means not e.g. 'ir regular' means 'not regular‘ dis  means 'not' e.g.  'dis agree' means 'not agree'
Other prefixes  Here are some  other examples  of common prefixes.
