11 Plus Prefixes

11 Plus Prefixes


A prefix is a letter or a small group of letters added to the beginning of a word to change its meaning.

The opposite of prefix is the suffix. While prefixes are added to the beginning of a word, suffixes are added to the end.

Some prefixes such as over and in have meaning independently, whereas some, such as dis and un, do not have a sense.


Prefixes mostly indicate the opposite of a word.

  • Example: Disinterest is the opposite of interest. Here ‘dis’ is a prefix.

They are also used to signify too much or too little of a quantity.

  • Example:
  1. Overflow signifies too much flow. Here ‘over’ is a prefix.
  2. Underweight signifies too little weight. Here ‘under’ is a prefix.

Common prefixes in English:

  • Auto- self
  • Dis- reverse or remove
  • Pre- before
  • Sub- under or below
  • Over- too much

Examples of words with prefixes:

  • Supernatural
  • Disagree
  • Inaccurate
  • Unaffected
  • Misaligned
