Explanation of Sort:
What I learned this week was that a suffix is added to the end of a word too change the meaning of the word but, in this case it can change the way the word is used. Also that -ness means the state of being this suffix also changes the word into a noun. Next that -ful means full of, or having this suffix changes the base word into an adjective. Also that -less means without and changes the base word into an adjective. Then I learned that a combination of suffixes is when to suffixes are in one word. Finally I learned that before you add a suffix with a word that ends in an y you have too change the ending into and i. That is what I learned this week.
