Prefix Suffix Meanings

Prefix Suffix Meanings and Usage

This is the last prefix suffix meanings page… alphabetically speaking that is.

There are more pages concerning prefixes and suffixes which can be easily reached from this page. Just a click or two and you should be able to find what it is you’re looking for.

For more prefix suffix meanings and for a complete guide to prefixes and suffixes

I recommend the following link to learn all you need to know about prefixes, suffixes and their meanings. It’s a pdf file from a school. It’s 16 pages of great information regarding all of the prefixes and suffixes for each grade… that’s why I’ve included it as a link from this page.

Hopefully, you’ll find it a valuable tool.
