“N” – Vocab-ability Suffixes – A More Powerful Vocabulary (This post includes the single suffix beginning with the letter “N”)

in #writing6 years ago (edited)

This post comprises the single suffix that begins with the letter “N.” It includes several English words whose etymology can be traced to Greek and Latin roots.

If you learn this suffix, you will be able to understand and use those English words that feature it. Vocab-ability is an easy-to-use resource guide to help you understand this and other suffixes.

This Vocab-ability post features a single suffix that begins with the letter “N."

After the suffixes, what will happen?
I see darkness everywhere.

Fear not. There will be light! The light will shine everyday. Brightly.

After Suffixes, I'll do a NUMBERS post. Then, I'll compile a full INDEX of all the posts I've uploaded over the past 6 months, That will take about 1 week.

And then ..... DAILY "VOCAB-ABILITY 1x1" posts!! Coming Soon!!!

Those daily posts will give you a chance not only to review each entry, but also to practice using each word that appears in the entries. And proper usage of the words will be rewarded with UPVOTES.

I expect you'll get a steady stream (streeem!) of upvotes.

Unfortunately, if very many people reply, my upvote weight might decrease a bit. But people who give a bad usage reply will get only a 1% upvote, or 0%. If anyone uses each word in a proper sentence which conveys the meaning of the word in context, they'll get a 10%. (Maybe a bit more, but don't tell everyone that! :-) )

All right, all right. I will be waiting for the 1x1 posts!

Hey this is really great! I think it's awesome that you're helping others to improve their own writing ability! Something that this world desperately needs in more writers, well done!

Thanks for the compliment.

The world is gonna get more and more of this. Soon, I'll finish this series of group postings. Then, I'm gonna start a daily series of individual entries, complete with Practice Exercises, so that Steemers can practice using their vocab.

Mostly for second-language speakers, but anyone can learn. Especially those who pretend to be writers!
