2.15 Suffixes

A suffix is a syllable that comes at the end of a word and changes its meaning. The suffix ant and ent mean a person or thing that does something.
A person who occupies a place is an occupant.
A person who obeys is obedient.

A root word is the common stem that gives related words their basic meanings. When a word ends in silent e, keep the e before adding a suffix beginning with a consonant. Drop the e before adding a suffix beginning with a vowel.
announce + ment = announcement
announce + ing = announcing
Announce is the root word in this example.

The suffix less means without: ative means having the nature of or relating to; ive means having or tending to be.

Faultless means without fault or blame.
Formative means something that can be formed or molded.
Corrective means something that fixes a problem.
