Affixes are added to root words and in turn change the meaning of the word. An affix that is found at the front of the root word is called a prefix. If you add an affix to the end of a root word, it is known as a suffix. In many cases a hyphen will be placed between the affix and the root word. A we placed affix cannot only change the meaning of a word, but how it is entirely pronounced. The worksheets found below will have students work with affixes in action.
