Great emphasis is laid on prefixes and suffixes, the origin of words, and pronunciation.
In the following chart the suffixes are constant while the root varies.
We have already seen that Hebrew prefixes its pronominal elements in certain cases, suffixes them in others.
In adjectives we have suffixes of degree (comparison: -er, -est).
Do not trouble to learn the grammar and list of suffixes by themselves first.
As explained above, these suffixes may be piled one on another.
What they left behind them was only six words, most of which became merely the prefixes or the suffixes of the names of places.
The sign of the plural is interposed between the article and the suffixes.
Equivalent to the English suffixes -let in "streamlet," -ule in "globule," "pustule."
These two are the most important and most widely used of all the suffixes.
A letter or a group of letters added to the end of a word to change its meaning. For example, adding the suffix -ter to the adjective hot turns it into the comparative adjective hotter, and adding the suffix -ly to the adjective quick turns it into the adverb quickly. Other examples of words with suffixes are: “willing,” “management,” “serviceable,” “harmonize,” and “joyful.” (Compare prefix.)
