What is a word family?
Word families are words that are related to each other in a combination of having the same word root (with prefixes, suffixes or other words added to make compound words like superman), grammar and meaning. The words play, playful, playing and replay are all part of the same word family as they all have the same word root (play) and are related in meaning. A root word is a basic word that does not have any prefixes or suffixes added to it.
