can you match these prefixes, suffixes, and word roots with their definitions?

-

Are you looking for a fun, informative way to spend your afternoon? Do you want to learn a little grammar and vocabulary in the process? Well look no further!

I have put together a quiz with 20 questions, all asking about prefixes, suffixes, and word roots. It is designed to be challenging but not impossible. All answers are given at the end.

If we wanted to know “What does ‘mis- mean?'”, then our answer would be “mistaken”. Or if we wanted to know “What is the word for ‘to give?'”, then the answer would be “donate”.

These prefixes, suffixes, and word roots are used in everyday conversations and found in books, newspapers, magazines, poems and much more. So why not turn your dull afternoon into an exciting grammar learning adventure!
