Understanding word formation – beyond the basics


Forming new words from words we know is a very important skill – how to turn a noun into a verb? A verb into a noun? An adjective into a negative adjective? Not always easy.

There are also quite a few ways of forming new words in English: using affixes ('impenetrable'), compounding ('old-fashioned'), clipping ('brunch'), conversion ('ghosting somebody'), among others. In this course, we'll look at all of these and more!

If you're an English teacher, an advanced user of the language, or if you're preparing for an international exam such as Cambridge C1 or C2, this course is certainly for you!
