We posted the topic below about a year ago, but prefixes are so common in English that we thought it might be time for a little review. A prefix is a letter or a group of letters at the beginning of a word that helps give it meaning.

For example, the prefixes: un-, im-, in-, ir-, il-, dis-, and non- all mean “NOT.” So a word like “illegal” means “not legal” or “disapprove” means “not approve.” If you can master some of these types of words, you can easily expand your vocabulary simply by using words you may already know.
