英文文法規則~15 點

Q1:When something is not, sometimes we put "Un", sometimes we put "Dis" "Im" "In" "Il"(at the front) or "less"( at the last)

What are the rules?And examples.

    i dont think theres a strict rule for it but as a general rule of thumb,

    il- prefix for something that begins with an 'L' eg. legal, legitimate, literate etc

    ir - prefix for something tht begins with an R eg. regular, responsible, relevant etc

    seriously.. theres not a single rule in english that all sentencing or structures have to abide by.. in other words there are so many exceptions in every case of grammar so the best way of learning it is really to read more and broadly and somehow get used to the way how they are used in different contexts
