The suffixes -er and -est are also used to form the comparative and superlative of adjectives (for example, light / lighter / lightest).
It is essential for students to develop an understanding of root words, roots, and other morphemes in order to deconstruct words and build word meaning. Our root word spelling lists, used in conjunction with engaging root word activities, are a great way to improve student understanding of how words are formed.
While there are many conflicting definitions of root words and base words, teachers need to keep in mind the importance of teaching these topics. Knowledge of morphemes, like word roots, helps with reading fluency, vocabulary development, and reading comprehension.
