    Open:

    Closed:
    http://www.answers.com/topic/closed-class

    All this is not easy to understand, but if you'll post your vocabulary words, we'll try to help you.

    Piano, profess, profit, season, finance, magnet, treaty, balance, contrast, react, tantrum, radio, climate, create, closet, comet, canyon, humid, metric, current, freedom, raisin, hundred, transmit.

    Thank you. It is very confusing.

    Open class words are the group "that accepts the addition of new items, through such processes as compounding, derivation, coining, borrowing, etc." So -- to what words in your list can you add endings?

    Closed class words make up the group "to which no new items can normally be added, and that usually contains a relatively small number of items." (Words such as these: the, a, an, to, if ...)

    Unless your teacher has given you a different set of directions, these should work fine. What do you think?

    He wants me to put them into six categories, VCV, VVCV, VV for open and VCV, VCCV, VCCCV for closed. I am so lost, I will try to figure it out. Thank you.

    V = vowel?

    C = consonant?

    I don't know how "piano" would fit!! CVVCV??

    VCCV would be something like "able," I guess.

    I'd be lost, too! Sorry I don't understand this better. =(
