WORD-MAKING.
1. A word that cannot be reduced to a simpler form is called
a root; as, man^ good, drink.
2. Particles added to the end of the root are called muf^xcs,
as, man-(v, Ax'mk-ing. *
Suffixes are said to form derivatives ; as, is
called a derivative from mayi.
3. Particles placed before the root are called prenxo!^; as,
w«-man ly, ^^^^s-deed, &c.
Prefixes are used to form eonipounds; as, for-bid,
gain-say, &c.
Prefixes were once independent words. Many of them are
still so used: cp. mis-take ~ a-miss; /o?r-know, know
before; ?(?/f/e;'-stand, &c.
4. Compounds are also formed by putting two words
together; as, black bird, ink-stand,
.5. Besides English suffixes there are very many others that are
borrowed from Trench, Latin, and Greek.
6. These suffixes mark different notions and relations. Some
denote the doer or agent; others form abstract nouns ; a few
express diminution or augmentation.
