I have a question- I am looking for an overview of rules for word formation processes in English (like a sheet or sth).. with the most important pre- and suffixes to build adverbs, adjectives, nouns, verbs..
It shouldn't be too complicated as I need it for a E-L2 class ..
I have already searched through the web but with no sucess.. maybe someone has an idea and is able to help me?
Thanks a lot in advance!
