PostSubject: Suffixes Beginning With Vowels   Mon 20 Mar - 15:04

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 silent e, the e is usually dropped.

skate + ing = skating late + er = later (not lateer)

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

1. Only a great write could produce such a novel. (en, er) writer

2. I never receive an answer to my question. (ed, ing)

3. Cheryl is a very like person. (able, al)

4. You shouldn’t fly on such a haze night! (al, y)

5. Is the mall close at the usual time? (or, ing)

6. Decent people will reject any race law. (ish, ist)

7. This song will live up the party. (en, est)

8. All my clothes came out of the laundry with a blue tint. (ish, ist)

9. A tide wave can wipe out an entire village. (able, al)

10. This may be one of the close elections in our history. (en, est)

Good luck queen
