UNIT 3: Together We Live
VocabularyI. The villagers of Siripuram carried many things with them on carts to the town. Write the names of any four of them.
‘-ous’, and ‘-able’ are suffixes. By adding these and several other suffixes (‘-less’, ‘-ment’, ‘-ness’, ‘-ful’…) we can make new words.
danger +ous = dangerous favour + able = favourable
courage + ous = courageous remark + able = remarkable
(Remember in words such as ‘curious, delicious, anxious,’ the ending ‘ous’ is not a suffix.)
Now, complete the words using appropriate suffixes.
taste_______ wash_______ sick_______
end_______ work_______ hope_______
beauty_______ pay_________ search_______
move_______ announce_______ accept_______
