PostSubject: Suffixes Beginning With Consonants   Mon 20 Mar - 15:06

Suffixes are endings that are added to root words. If the ending begins with a consonant, the spelling of the root word is usually not altered. For example:

nice + ly = nicely The final e was not dropped before ly was added.


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



1. The old picture was bad faded. (ment, ly) badly

2. The governor made a state to the press. (ful, ment)

3. Their loss caused much sad. (ness, less)

4. Mr. Keyes is a force speaker. (ful, ty)

5. The fox sly hid his motives. (ful, ly)

6. He richly deserves that punish. (ness, ment)

7. Meg was false accused of stealing. (ly, ty)

8. Their agreement is a hope sign. (ful, less)

9. A care act can cause much pain. (ful, less)

10. She questions his fit to be a leader. (ful, ness)


Good luck queen
