Sheehan Michael J. Word Parts Dictionary
This dictionary focuses on four kinds of word parts.
Prefixes (pre): A prefix is a syllable, group of syllables, or word united
with or joined to the beginning of another word to alter its meaning or cre ate a new word. For example, re- is a prefix in the word "redevelop. " The hyphen at the end of the prefix indicates that it usually starts a word.
Suffixes (suf): A suffix is a syllable, group of syllables, or word added at the end of a word or word base to change its meaning, give it grammatical form, or form a new word. For example, -ette is a suffix in the word "kitchenette. " The hyphen at the start of the suffix indicates that it normally ends a word.
Combining forms (comb): A combining form is a word form that occurs only in compounds, or in compounds and derivatives, and that can combine with other such forms or with prefixes and suffixes to form a word.
For example, cryo- is one of the combining forms in the word "cryogenic, " and -genie is the other one. The hyphens indicate that cryo- usually starts the word in which it appears and that -genie usually ends the word in which it appears.
Bases (base): A base is a stem or a root, a generally short letter combination that conveys a recurrent meaning all by itself without being involved in a compound word. Prefixes and suffixes may be added to it. For example, -diet- is a base in the word "predictable. " The two hyphens indicate that it may appear at any location in a word: front, back, or middle. Thus, we have "dictation, " "contradict, " and "predictable. "
