Words with multiple suffixes

Last Update : Sun 22nd Apr 2018

1 - Parts of speech

Can you find four words that have more than one suffix? Example : viciousness Give a whole sentence with each word. Not easy. If you get stuck you can use the -ly suffix to make an adverb, but full marks for finding words that have multiple suffixes without using -ly
If your answers are not marked immediately, this is because there are so many possible answers and a tutor must look at your answers. Send a message in the chat when you want a tutor to mark your answers.
