"Backward" has no prefix. "back" is not a prefix because the word "ward" isn't related to the word "backward". to ward off a predator, for example, is not related to the word backward. neither is the noun "ward", as in a hospital ward. Additionally, although "ward" appears at the end of "backward" and "forward", it is not a suffix. This is because, if taken away from the word forward, we are left with "for", which is itself not related to the word "forward". Unless it is related to the "fore" of a ship, perhaps?
