Session One: Wellbeing Journal and English
English- What are suffixes?
Suffix: A letter or group of letters that goes on the end of a word and changes the word's meaning.
Sometimes they change the original word's spelling.
When adding a suffix you might have to double the last letter.
When adding -ed to drop you also double the p so it becomes dropped.
Some suffixes have specific uses.
Adding ing can change a noun into a verb, like garden to gardening.
Using the suffix ed can turn a verb to the past tense, like jump becomes jumped.
