Worksheet Overview

The prefix dis- can change the meaning of a verb to its opposite.

Jason dislikes peas.


It can also have the meaning of removing or reversing something.

Mum disconnected the old computer.

Our team was disqualified from the competition.


Other prefixes, such as un-, mis-, in- and re-, can also have a similar meaning and it can be hard to know which one to use. For example, if you give someone the wrong information, are you disinforming them or misinforming them? The correct word is misinform, but there is no easy way of working it out. You may need a dictionary to help you.


In this worksheet you will be looking at some more unusual words with the prefix dis- and also deciding whether it is the correct prefix to use or not.
