Prefixes are a preset series of letters that we add to the beginning of words to make new meanings. An example would be the prefix un-. This prefix carries the meaning of not. Put the un- on the front of any word and it will be not that. For example, the word “able” means to possess the power or opportunity to do something. The word unable (un- + able) means to be not able to do something. These can be very versatile because they do not require to change the spelling of the stem word. As we begin to develop as writers, this helps speed the process and stops us from all constantly looking for new terms to help us describe our thoughts. These worksheets will help you learn how to use these new fangled affixes to form new vocabulary terms from existing ones.
