  1. Good afternoon! Happy Tuesday Electronics off & away Have out homework: “From Ancient Greece to Iraq…”

  2. Let’s Review… • Find a partner that is not seated at your table • Discuss your answers • If you differ, explain why

  3. As a class: • Review together • What was different about this exercise than previous English assignments? • Did you struggle? Why or why not?

  4. Notes: • Affix: an additional element placed at the beginning or end of a root, stem, or word, or in the body of a word, to modify its meaning. • Prefix: an affix placed before a word, base, or another prefix to modify a term's meaning • Suffix: an affix occurring at the end of a word, base, or phrase

  5. Notes Continued • Root: the form of a word after all affixes are removed

  6. Connotation: • ideas or feelings associated with a word • Example: the word slimy by itself can accurately describe a slug, a cluster of algae, or the feeling on your face after your mastiff has ensured that you were properly welcomed home. However, when slimy is used to describe a person, the reader recognizes that this person is not someone you want to ask to housesit while you head to the Bahamas for a week.

  7. Denotation: The dictionary definition. Example: the words beautiful, fair, handsome, attractive, and pretty essentially all mean the same thing; whatever or whomever is being described is going to be regarded as nice to look at.

  8. Roots/Affixes • Chart: you will have a test over this chart next Wednesday • It will be fill in the blank • Given the affix, you must provide the definition • This will help with figuring out unknown words

  9. Suggestions for studying: • Locate at least 5 words with the affix • Be able to identify the affix in the words • Find something that the words have in common
