Prefixes

A common way of making new words in English is by adding standard combinations of letters to existing words, either at the beginning (prefixes) or at the end (suffixes). By noting these carefully, you will find it easy to increase your vocabulary.

A prefix is a syllable, 2 syllables, or sometimes even a word, put at the beginning of a word to change its meaning or to make another word. Prefixes are often used to give an adjective, a verb or a noun a negative meaning, but there are also lots of other prefixes with specific meanings.
