Affix-a word element, such as a prefix or a suffix, that occurs before or after a root or base word to modify its meaning.
Root-the form of a word after all affixes are removed; meaning: base, root, stem, theme
Prefix- an element placed at the beginning of a word to adjust or qualify its meaning.
A PREFIX is a letter or a group of letters attached to the beginning of a word that partly indicates its meaning. For example, the word prefix itself begins with a prefix--pre-, which generally means "before.“Be careful: some prefixes (such as in-) have more than one meaning (in this example, "not" and "into").
A SUFFIXis a letter or a group of letters attached to the end of a word to form a new word or to alter the grammatical function of the original word. For example, the verb read can be made into the noun reader by adding the suffix -er; read can be made into the adjective readable by adding the suffix -able.
