Lesson Excerpt

A suffix is a letter, syllable, or word that is added to a root or stem of a word to either form a new word or add to its meaning. Suffixes are placed at the end of the root word. The main thing that a suffix shows is how it will be used in a sentence and how it is classified, in terms of whether the word is a noun, a verb, an adverb, or an adjective.

Lesson Proper:

  • Discussion

    Inflection changes grammatical properties of a word within its syntactic category. In the example:

    The weather forecaster said it would clear today, but it hasn't cleared at all.
    the suffix -ed inflects the root-word clear to indicate past tense.

    Some inflectional suffixes in present day English:
    • -s third person singular present
    • -ed past tense
    • -ing progressive/continuous
    • -en past participle
    • -s plural
    • -en plural (irregular)
    • -er comparative
    • -est superlative
    • -n't negative[2]

  • Boardwork
    • The teacher will ask the students to identify suffixes from the sentences given.


  • List atleast 20 works with suffix and use each in sentences.
