LC: To use prefixes to understand the meaning of words

Most prefixes mean a similar thing when they're added to different words.

  • un- and in- usually mean ‘not’.

For example: unhappy, unlocked, unfair and intolerant, incapable, inconsiderate

  • dis- and mis- usually have negative meanings.

For example: disagree, disobey, misbehave, mislead

  • re- usually means ‘again’ or ‘back’.

For example: redo, reappear, redecorate

  • sub- usually means ‘under’.

For example: subheading, submarine

Today, we are going to focus on the prefixes dis, mis and re.
