Prefix Suffix Tool

We have developed this tool to automate how you add affixes to words, either to change the meaning or create new words. It enables you to append any prefix or suffix to multiple words at a time, saving time and effort. The prefix or suffix that you specify will be added to every word present in the provided list. It is up to you how many words you enter. Explore a valuable resource on common grammar errors related to prefixes and suffixes.

 

Whether you want to attach an affix to only one word or thousand words, our tool lets you do it in one attempt. Just highlight the “prefix” or “suffix” and provide the list of root words to which you would like to attach it. Our tool will take only a moment to amend the affixes and modify the word(s) as required. 

 

It can be any affix or word, such as you can add “-dis” as a prefix with the root word “agree” to make it “disagree”, or you can attach “-er- as a suffix with the root word “fast” to make it “faster”. If required, then you can use our morpheme adder to insert both affixes at the same time— for instance, add “-un” prefix and “-ly” suffix to the root word “happy” to make it “unhappily”.Moreover, to accurately change the text to the desired case format in your document try out our online free change text case tool. 

 

From linguistic researchers to language learners, writers, and content marketers can benefit from our word modifier tool. This is because our tool can help to compile corpora, build dictionaries, improve vocabulary, and much more. We have various tools for text formatting that can help you to perform all tasks efficiently tools including Sort Text and Word Count.

What are Affixes?

Affixes are morphemes (the smallest unit of the word) that are attached to a root word either to modify its meaning or create a new word from it. There are two types of affixes: prefixes and suffixes

 

The prefix is the one that is added at the beginning of a root word, whereas the suffix is the one that is added at the end of a root word. For instance, -dis is a prefix that we can add to the root word “honest”, making it “dishonest”. If we consider the suffix -ing, then we can exemplify it by adding it to the root word “go”, making it “going”. Furthermore, if you encounter any challenges with reversing letters and words, we offer a suite of handy reversing tools including the reversal of letters and reversal of words, are designed to streamline your efforts, saving you valuable time while ensuring effective and efficient results.


What is Root Word?


A root word is the base word that cannot be broken down further into smaller meaningful parts or morphemes. These are the basic building blocks of words from which many other words can be constructed. For instance, prefixes or suffixes can be added to a root word to modify its meaning.

 

Here are some examples of root words and their modified forms:

 

Root Word: "Anthrop" - meaning "human"
Examples: Anthropology, anthropomorphic, misanthrope

Root Word: "Derm" - meaning "skin"
Examples: Dermatology, epidermis, hypodermic

Root Word: "Psych" - meaning "mind" or "soul"
Examples: Psychology, psychic, psychopath

Root Word: "Gen" - meaning "birth" or "origin"
Examples: Genealogy, generation, genetics

Root Word: "Graph" - meaning "writing" or "drawing"
Examples: Graphite, autograph, photography

Root Word: "Jur" - meaning "law"
Examples: Jurisdiction, jurisprudence, juror

Root Word: "Morph" - meaning "shape" or "form"
Examples: Metamorphosis, morphology, amorphous

Root Word: "Circum" - meaning "around"
Examples: Circumference, circumnavigate, circumvent


What are Examples of Prefixes and Suffixes?

Importance of Suffixes and Prefixes


Suffixes and prefixes are important elements of language as they significantly impact the meaning and comprehension of words. They also assist with vocabulary acquisition and understanding.

 

Help to identify the part of speech: Suffixes and prefixes can help identify the part of speech of a word. For example, the suffix "-ly" is often added to adjectives to create adverbs, as in "quickly." 

 

Change the meaning of a word: Suffixes and prefixes can alter the meaning of a word. For example, the prefix "un-" can change the meaning of a word to its opposite, as in "happy" to "unhappy.

 

Assist in forming new words: Suffixes and prefixes can be used to create new words. For example, the suffix "-ful" can change a noun to an adjective, as in "hope" to "hopeful”, or “beauty” to “beautiful”.

 

Enable to understand unfamiliar words: Suffixes and prefixes help to decipher unfamiliar words. For example, the prefix "micro-" means small, so you can infer that "microorganism" refers to small organisms.
