The suffix

-al What is a suffix? What does it do?

RULE: A suffix is a group of letters added at the end of a word.

A common suffix is –al. Adding –al changes a noun into an adjective.

-al can mean for or of. The drum is a (musical) instrument.

The drum is a instrument of/for music.

Notice how the noun follows the adjective with the –al ending.

Example: accident } accidental

Nouns the have the letter ‘e’ at the end, should be changed. Drop the ‘e’ before adding a vowel like –al.
