Many difficult words in English can be derived from Latin or Greek. If you know what the parts of the word, you better guess at the meaning of the whole word. That makes vocabulary learning a lot easier! Many of the affixes and word roots are also in Dutch, so that makes studying easier.

What is an affix?

An affix is ​​a little word which in itself is not a word, but is combined with another word. A simple example of the Netherlands is under. This means "no," but only if you combine it with words like happiness, handy, peace, knowledge, etc. There are different types of affixes:
  • Prefixes that come to the floor as de-
  • Suffixes coming after the word, such as -ness
  • Infixen that come in the middle of the word, such as repeated movement for -el
  • Circumfixen that come before and after the word, such as Communities -t / d to the past participle

What is a stem word?

A word stem and an affix are similar, but there are some differences:
  • Although affixes at different locations in the word occurrence, the different species are always only on that spot for. A prefix hears the word and therefore never come to the end. In the middle is only possible if there is a different prefix for state. A word stem can move freely, both at the beginning, middle and end. So we come to the word stem "scintillation" in all three places against: spectator, introspection, inspect.
  • Affixes can never stand alone, while word stems sometimes independently form a word. For example
  • From: as word stem "by", as an independent word "every"
  • port: as word stem "bear", as an independent word "port"
  • script: word root as "writing", as an independent word "script"
  • Word Strains can be adjusted in the same way as full words. You can hang multiple affixes to a word, but a group affixes together can form a word. A word stem may affixes just that form a word. The word ?? true ?? You can make other derivative words with prefixes and suffixes such as trust, trustworthy, loyal dog, etc. In the same way you make a word root as "duc" induction, guard, crossover, etc.

  • The affix and word stems are ordered alphabetically. In addition to the significance also are given two examples. For words that are more difficult to guess, is the Dutch translation in parentheses. Under remarks you will find references to other affixes or strains that are found in the examples.
