Language Fun: Root Out the Word

Have you ever heard of an affix before?

Affixes are small bits of meaning that are an important part of how words are made! Prefixes are a type of affix and can turn somebody who is ‘likeable’ into someone much less pleasant to be around: ‘unlikeable’. Suffixes are another kind of affix, which might help an adjective like ‘sad’ describe other words as an adverb: ‘sadly‘.
