What is a 'suffix'? Chandrakant Misra
A 'suffix' is a phonetic unit placed after a root word. The root word is the part of the word that contains the basic meaning. A root word stands on its own as a word. But you can make new words from it by adding the ending 'suffix'. e.g. : While 'comfort' is a root word, you can make a new word by adding the suffixes like 'able' (comfortable), 'ing' (comforting).
