Vocabulary: Prefixes and Suffixes

Learning the meaning of common prefixes and suffixes is another great way to expand one’s receptive lexicon. This printable worksheet requires students to define words that contain both a prefix (in, un, non, or dis) and a suffix (able or ible), such as “undependable”. Keeping the prefixes’ and suffixes’ meanings consistent allows students to easily get the hang of determining new meanings when the prefixes and suffixes are added to known root words.
