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 wordโ€™s meaning.

A prefix is a group of letters placed before the root of a word. For example, the word โ€œunhappyโ€ consists of the prefix โ€œun-โ€ [which means โ€œnotโ€] combined with the root (or stem) word โ€œhappyโ€; the word โ€œunhappyโ€ means โ€œnot happy.โ€

A short list of prefixes:

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 โ€œflavorโ€ combined with the suffix โ€œ-lessโ€ [which means โ€œwithoutโ€]; the word โ€œflavorlessโ€ means โ€œhaving no flavor.โ€

A short list of suffixes:

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

Prefix is a group of letters placed before the root word. For example; unhappy, unfriend. These words were added -un before the root word happy and friend. While suffix is a group of letters placed after the root word. For example; nicely, perfectly. These words were added -ly after the root word nice and perfect.

An affix is a term that refers to a prefix or a suffix. Whereas the prefix is an affix placed at the beginning of a word, the suffix is an affix placed at the end of a word. Actually, an affix is a bound morpheme. Therefore, the prefix is a bound morpheme, and the suffix is a bound morpheme. So, when you add a prefix or a suffix to a word, that word is called a free morpheme. As it is, a prefix + a free morpheme is the combination of two morphemes. Similarly, a free morpheme + a suffix is the combination of two morphemes.
