Suffixes: -ful, -less, -ly, -able

The English language is very interesting, if you look at the words closely you will see some repetitive combination of alphabets ending the words. These letters that end a word are called ‘suffixes. These suffixes change the meaning of words and can create new words. In this video we talk about 4 suffixes:

• ful

• less

• ly

• able

-ful

When we add suffix -ful to a word it changes its meaning to ‘full of’. For example:

• Colorful

• Grateful

-less

When we add -less to a word it means ‘without’, which means that something is without the word that’s in the start of this word. For example:

• Homeless

• Helpless

-ly

The suffix -ly can be used to answer two questions, how often and how.
