To the Student
This Spelling Power workbook provides the practice you need to improve your spelling and
writing ability and to expand your vocabulary. Each spelling lesson focuses on a single spelling
pattern or concept that applies to a list of words in a Word Bank. You then have several
opportunities to practice what you’ve learned: writing the words, using them in sentences,
recognizing and correcting them as you proofread, and applying the spelling pattern or con-
cept to new words that follow the same pattern. If you have trouble with an exercise, you can
always go back to the Word Bank and Key Concepts discussion, review the material, and then
return to the exercise.

You can keep track of your own progress and achievement in spelling by using the Student
Progress Chart, which appears on page v. With your teacher’s help, you can score your work
on any lesson, quiz, or test. After you know your score, use the Scoring Scale on pages vi–vii
to figure your percentage. Then mark your score (or percentage correct) on the Student
Progress Chart. Share your Progress Chart with your parents or guardians as your teacher
directs.

Nan was concerned about having few friends. She asked Donna to advize her. Donna agreed to talk
with her and analize the problem. After a long afternoon, Donna said to Nan, “The problems seem
clear. First, you characterise all your friends by their faults instead of by their strengths. Second, you
seem to dramatise every little incident. Relax a bit! Finally, if today is any indication, you seem to
monopolyze every conversation. Try listening to your friends.”

Lesson 16: Prefixes

Word Bank

antibiotic appalling bilingual commemorate disembodied

preconception reconcile subconscious superfluous unicycle

Key Concepts
A prefix is added to the beginning of a word root. Adding a prefix does not alter the spelling of the word root. However, adding
a prefix to a word does change the meaning of the original word.

1. The prefixes uni- (one) and bi- (two) refer to quantities, as in unicycle and bilingual.

2. The prefixes sub- (below) and super- (above) refer to position, as in subconscious and superfluous.

3. The prefixes pre- (before) and re- (again) refer to time, as in preconception and reconcile.

4. The prefixes anti- (against) and dis- (not) make a word negative, as in antibiotic and disembodied.

5. The prefix com- takes many spellings, including con- and co-, and means “together” or “with,” as in commemorate.

6. The prefix ad-, which often means “toward,” can change its spelling to match the first letter of the word or root that
follows, as in appalling.

Strong Candy Sales Spur Company Growth

Thanks to the incite of Amelia Byers, the greataunt of company president Morton Byers, sales of our
old-fashioned Chewy Gooey candies have greatly increased.

It was Auntie Amelia, as Mr. Byers likes to call her, who recommended discontinuing the formally
popular olive green chewies and introducing new brighter colors such as hot pink and lemon-yellow.
The new colors, which bring the total number of varieties to thirty nine alltogether, have been
particulerly popular among teenagers.

Two thirds of our retail shops are currently selling the new varieties at a minimal mark-up. The next
faze will be to ensure a sufficeint supply of the product in all stores within the next month and to orga-
nize an all out blitz in the shopping malls for the holidays.

A colorful brochure to formerly introduce the new Chewy Gooey candies will be mailed to sales rep-
resentatives nationwide. Our thoroughly-efficient marketing department is collaborating with the adver-
tising agency to devise a memorable slogan. An early favorite is “Give your mouth a work-out: Try
Chewy Gooeys.” We hope to have all the decision-making about the ad campaign completed before
too much time lapses.

These latest advances will ensure that Byers continues to be the top-selling candy manufacturer in
the United States. At a time when lay-offs and poor quality are common ocurences in other companies,
we can be proud of our reputation for stability, wellmade products, superior customer relations, and an
overall commitment to excellence in all departments of our company.
