I am trying to help my son do "word extensions". I don't know what that means. Can someone help me? Example? rate Extension ?

Extensions?? Would they be suffixes or extended meanings from the base word, do you think?

rate ~~> ratio


Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Hopefully the following site will help you:


Actually if a teacher asks for "word extensions" the students should have a definition of the terminology and/or examples of what to do!

Ahhh, yes, SraJMcGin is right.

Did the teacher mean Word extensions -- that is, extensions on files in the program Microsoft Word?

There's only one that I know of -- .doc -- every single file I make using Word has .doc at the end of the file name.
