Formation of words
With some English vocabulary, we must sometimes change the form of the words in order to get the right meaning. This is called derivation.
Example: She gave me happy on my last birthday. X
The correct sentence is : She gave me happiness on my last birthday.
We can add prefixes or suffixes such as :
Dis + honest =dishonest
Im + possible = impossible
Joy + ful = Joyful
Care + less = careless
