Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

A suffix is a letter or group of letters added to the end of a word. Knowing what a suffix means can help us to understand new words.

 

For example, if we add the suffix -ful to the end of a word it has the meaning of 'full of'.

A person who is hopeful is full of hope.

 

Remember that the suffix -ful only has one 'l' even though the word 'full' has two!
