when and where i.e words we should use the sufix mis,-mal,-im,ir

  • English - ,

    Those are prefixes, not suffixes, aren't they? They come at the BEGINNING of words; here are some examples:

    misplaced
    misspelled
    misstep

    malevolent
    malware
    malady

    immaterial
    immerse
    (2 different meanings in those two)

    irrevocable
    irretrievable
    irresistible

    Look up these words at http://www.answers.com and/or http://www.onelook.com

    At OneLook, you can also search like this, including the asterisk:
    mis*
    mal*
    im*
    ir*

    All of these four prefixes will give a word a negative meaning or an opposite meaning to what the root word means.
