What are Words?

Words can be defined as a combination of letters expressed in writing or speech and have specific meanings. For example- house, car, irritation, chemical, sun, vary. It is really easy to keep giving on examples.

Words are commonly used with other words to form a meaningful sentence. For example- “Where did you find the key?” They can also be used alone. For example- “Stop!”

  • Cup, cups
  • Dog, dogs
  • Hot, hotter, hottest
  • Fine, finer, finest
  • Advance, advances, advanced, advancing
  • Surpass, surpasses, surpassed, surpassing

Word Formation

Words can be joined or taken apart to form new words with different meanings. For example:

  • Hand + rail = handrail
  • Basket + ball = basketball
  • Hair + dresser = hairdresser
  • Ham + burger = hamburger
  • Self + esteem = self-esteem

Prefix and Suffix

Words can also be formed by adding different words in front of nouns. The words that come in front are called Prefixes. For example: 

  • in + flexible = inflexible
  • in + experienced = inexperienced
  • un + educated = uneducated

Words can also be added after nouns to form new words. For example- clearly, weakness.
