The science of formation of words is called Morphology. This word is especially related to Biology. But we have word morphology in linguistics as well. There can be 3 parts of a word.

Prefix + root + Suffix

Root is the main part of a word. For example, in the word "enactment," act is the root part, 'en' prefix and 'ment' suffix. To know more visit here.

A prefix is something that is in front of a word. The word "prefix" has the prefix "pre" (can you believe it?!? [insert a heck ton of "xd"s ])

Let's look at the prefix "Un". "Un" means "not". Here we have the word "kind".

"Kind" means "nice" or "the same/similar". If we add the prefix "un" in front of "kind", the word becomes "unkind". This new word means "not nice" [mean] [rude] [INpolite] or "not the same/not similar". We have another word here. "Sure". If we add the prefix "un" in front of "sure", then the word becomes "unsure" (lol). That means "not sure".

Another prefix is "re". This one means "again". For example, we have the word "REvive". If someone is ded ._. , we REvive them and make them alive. -again.

A suffix is just the opposite. The suffix comes at the END of a word.

We have the suffix "less". This means "without". "Careless" = without care.

Penniless = without pennys [money].

There are many more prefixes and suffixes but uhhhhh I don't feel like typing them :')

Anyway, I think you get the idea now :)

A prefix is a group of letters being added to the beginning of a word for example an, anti, dis etc. A suffix is a group of letters being added to the end of a word. for example ant, ful, able etc. A prefix modifies a word whereas a suffix changes a word’s meaning.

A prefix is a group of letters placed before the root of a word. For example, the word β€œunhappy” consists of the prefix β€œun-” [which means β€œnot”] combined with the root (or stem) word β€œhappy”; the word β€œunhappy” means β€œnot happy.”

A short list of prefixes:

de-: from, down, away, reverse, opposite; decode, decrease

dis-: not, opposite, reverse, away; disagree, disappear

ex-: out of, away from, lacking, former; exhale, explosion

il-: not; illegal, illogical

im-: not, without; impossible, improper

in-: not, without; inaction, invisible

mis-: bad, wrong; mislead, misplace

non-: not; nonfiction, nonsense

pre-: before; prefix (this indicates that a prefix means something before a word), prehistory

pro-: for, forward, before; proactive, profess, program

re-: again, back; react, reappear

un-: against, not, opposite; undo, unequal, unusual

A suffix is a group of letters placed after the root of a word. For example, the word flavorless consists of the root word β€œflavor” combined with the suffix β€œ-less” [which means β€œwithout”]; the word β€œflavorless” means β€œhaving no flavor.”

A short list of suffixes:

-able: able to, having the quality of; comfortable, portable

-al: relating to; annual comical

-er: comparative; bigger, stronger

-est: superlative; strongest, tiniest

-ful: full of; beautiful, grateful

-ible: forming an adjective; reversible, terrible

-ily: forming an adverb; eerily, happily, lazily

-ing: denoting an action, a material, or a gerund; acting, showing

-less: without, not affected by; friendless, tireless

-ly: forming an adjective; clearly, hourly

-ness: denoting a state or condition; kindness, wilderness

-y: full of, denoting a condition, or a diminutive; glory, messy, victory
