    Prefixes suffixes infixes. All types of affixes. Infixes are the best, like Hallo*******ween. Good luck!

    There is a root word or base that can be added by letters before, known as a prefix, or letters after, known as a suffix. For example, appoint can become disappoint by adding the prefix dis and motion can become motionless by adding the suffix less.

    Those on your list are examples of suffixes, "a letter or group of letters that is added to the end of a word to change its meaning or to form a different word.

    Prefix: a letter or group of letters that is added at the beginning of a word to change its meaning; a title  (such as "Mr." or "Dr.") that is used before a person's name.

    Conjunction: a word that joins together sentences, clauses, phrases or words (e.g. "and," "but," and "although"
