How can you remember the noun, adjective, adverb, and changing adjectives and nouns into verbs suffixes and the anglo-saxon affixes?...i have the hard time memorizing them because it is hard to tell the difference...like adjectives and adverbs...do you have any tricks to memorize them?

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
