8B Spellings – Due Mon 13th

Spelling patterns this week:  prefixes il-, im, ir

Relevant spelling guidelines: The prefix in- changes when the root word begins with either l, m, p, or r (see below). The prefix still makes the root word negative, and most commonly means ‘not’. The prefix is just added to the root word without a change in spelling.

  • Before a root word beginning with l, in- becomes il-
  • Before a root word beginning with m or p, in- becomes im-
  • Before a root word beginning with r, in- becomes ir-
  1. Illegible
