Preface
What is the Vocabulary List? The following quotation comes
from Jim Burkes home page.
A thorough survey of various textbooks, assignments, content
area standards, and examinations yields the following list of words.
You cannot expect to succeed on assignments if you do not
understand the directions. The words fall into several categories,
which are not identified on this sheet: nouns (e.g., What you read
or create); verbs (e.g., What the assignment asks you to do);
adjectives (e.g., specific details about what you must do); and
adverbs, which provide very important information about how to
do the assignment.
The Academic Vocabulary List can be obtained from:
www.englishcompanion.com
Upon arriving at Mr. Burkes home page, scroll down and click on:
NEW: Academic Vocabulary 2.0 (Expanded)
I have taken Jims Academic Vocabulary List (pages 3-4) and
categorized the words into parts of speech (pages 5-34). In
some cases, Ive expanded the root to show word usage in
different forms.
The purpose of compiling this list is to make it so the teacher will
be able to take all the words in the Academic Vocabulary List
and put them in a format that will make it easier to integrate them
into a usable vocabulary program, or just to use in daily lessons.
This format puts all the words parts of speech at your fingertips.
I hope this helps you as you help students! Good luck!

SUFFIXES

[Forming Parts of Speech]

When you are reading, you will come across unfamiliar words. It is often possible to guess their meanings if you
understand the way words in English are generally formed. An English word can be divided into three parts: a prefix, a
[root / base word], and a SUFFIX. Pre- means 'before. A prefix, therefore, is what comes before the [root / base word].
A SUFFIX is attached to the end of the [root / base word]. Many times, a word can be defined when it is known what
the prefix and the SUFFIX mean. Prefixes usually change the meaning of the word. However, a SUFFIX can
change the meaning of the word; it can also form the part of speech. Below are groups of SUFFIXES (Multiple
SUFFIXES) that are all used in the Academic Vocabulary List. They are listed under the parts of speech they
form. The bolded SUFFIXES are usually seen more often.
