L.C. To use suffixes to understand meaning.

We have been looking at the following prefixes

 

 -sion   -ssion   -ation   -cian

 

What sound do all of these make?

 

When we add these suffixes (-sion, -ssion and -ation), what happens to the meaning of the root word?

 

How is -cian different to the others? What happens when -cian is added to the end of a word?

 

 

Think about the following words, how does the meaning change? 

 

decide    -   decision

 

admit   -   admission

 

decorate    -    decoration

 

music    -    musician

 

 

On Seesaw, you have been given some root words and new words. Write down the meaning of the root word and the new word.
