Word formation is one of many exercises that you will find in Cambridge Exams. In this exercise you have to change the form of a word so that the sentence makes sense , eg. from a verb to a noun, or from a noun to an adjective …. Look at this example :
“ The ______________ was very proud of the achievement made by his student. ( TEACH ) “
You need to complete the sentence with a noun, so the verb TEACH has to be changed to get the noun TEACHER.
This excercise will also help you to build a richer vocabulary. By understanding the different word formation processes you will have the tools to make your learning easier.
Have a look of the table below. Would you be able to fill the gaps?
1. Which kind of words do you need? A verb? An adjective?
2. Is the new word negative? If so, you might need a prefix (e.g. un-/ im-/dis-)
3. Check your answer carefully and if you don´t know the word then guess because you may be right
