Harness the power of suffixes while adding more than 4,000 words to your Spanish vocabulary!
How do you turn a boat into a boatload in Spanish? Or change bread into a baker?* It isn’t magic, it’s suffixes. When attached to base terms, they have the ability to change meanings to indicate quantity, profession, gender, size, status, relationship, style, and much more. Mastering these word endings will enable you to increase your vocabulary greatly. Practice Makes Perfect: Spanish Vocabulary Building with Suffixes presents 150 commonly used suffixes accompanied by their meanings, English equivalent when applicable, part of speech, and gender. Grouped by difficulty level, each suffix is fully explained and followed by a list of terms using the specific word ending.
