What is a suffix?

Suffixes are letters, or groups of letters, that are added to the end of words to make a new word. Adding a suffix will change the meaning of the word.

Examples of suffixes:

  • -ing: eating, running, saying
  • -ed: planned, walked, burned
  • -er: teacher, trainer, farmer
  • -est: highest, fastest, biggest
  • -less: useless, sleeveless, witless
  • -ness: happiness, fitness, silliness
  • -ment: amazement, payment, punishment
  • -ful: careful, fearful, mouthful
  • -ly: bravely, softly, wisely
  • -ate: pollenate, medicate, captivate
  • -ise: realise, symbolise, vocalise
  • -ify: glorify, intensify, notify
