Suffix Quizzes & Trivia

Since we first become capable of speech, we also come to be prone to the creation of words, and we adapt language so that it may coincide with our needs. Suffixes have been one of man’s tools that he used to alter the meaning of words. In linguistics, a suffix (also sometimes called a postfix or ending) is an affix which is placed after the stem of a word. Particularly in the study of Semitic languages, a suffix is called an affirmative, as they can alter the form of the words to which they are fixed.

So, in order to make proper use of this tool, we must obtain a greater understanding of its capabilities. These quizzes will help you with questions like: “What are inflectional suffixes?”, “What are derivational suffixes?”, and “What is a suffixoid?”
