    Explanation
    A prefix is a group of letters added to the beginning of a word to change the meaning. It is a linguistic element that alters the meaning or grammatical function of a word.

    Correct Answer
    endings
    Explanation
    Ing, ed, e, and es are four of the most common endings on words. These suffixes are added to the base form of a word to change its tense, form, or meaning. The suffix "ing" is commonly used to indicate continuous action or present participle, while "ed" is used to indicate past tense or past participle. The suffix "e" is often added to verbs to form the third person singular present tense, and "es" is used to indicate plural nouns or third person singular present tense verbs. Therefore, the correct answer is "endings."

    ________________ are the group of letters added to the end of a word to change its meaning.

    Correct Answer
    Suffixes
    Explanation
    Suffixes are a group of letters added to the end of a word to change its meaning. They can alter the tense, form, or function of a word. For example, adding the suffix "-ed" to the word "walk" changes it to "walked," indicating past tense. Suffixes can also change the part of speech of a word, such as adding "-ness" to "kind" to create "kindness," turning an adjective into a noun. Overall, suffixes play a crucial role in modifying and expanding the meaning of words.
