What are the suffixes and prefixes

Sometimes word consists of other word or part of words placed at the end or beginning that change their meaning.

for example: unhappy so the un-word added to the root word (happy) and change its meaning to not happy.

If a part of the word is added at the start of the word it is called prefix and if it is added at the end of a word it is called as a suffix.

A prefix is a word or letters places before the root of a word.

For example, the word “unreal” consists of the prefix “un-” [which means “not”] combined with the root word “real”; the word “unreal” means “not real.”

A suffix is word or letters placed after the root of a word.

For example, the word tasteless consists of the root word “taste” combined with the suffix “-less” [which means “without”]; the word “tasteless” means “having no taste at all.”
