PostSubject: Suffixes Beginning With Vowels   Mon 20 Mar - 15:03

Suffixes are endings that are added to root words. If the ending begins with a vowel, the spelling of the root word usually changes. For example, if the root word ends with a single vowel-single consonant, the final consonant is usually doubled.

dig + ing = digging trap + er = trapper

Add the correct suffix to the italicized word in each sentence. The first one is done for you.

1. The dog beg for another treat. (ed, er) begged

2.Are you plan to visit me in Myrtle Beach? (ed, ing)

3.The doctor found a stop in Paul's intestine. (able, age)

4.Morris is in a crab mood! (al, y)

5.Has your cream diet made you any thin? (er, ing)

6.That bulb gives the room a red glow. (ish, ist)

7.The boxer wanted to flat his opponent. (en, est)

8.Why are you wearing wool on the hot day of the year? (est, ist)

9.We won't give up because the game is still win. (able, al)

10. Roxanne cram fourteen brownies into her mouth. (ed, est)

Good luck queen
