english correct word eduhyme

In English, there are many words that have the same root, but can be changed to be a verb, noun, adjective, or adverb by adding a suffix.

To use a word correctly in a sentence, it is important to know two things: not only which part of speech to choose (e.g. noun or verb), but also which suffix creates this part of speech (e.g. -ness or -tion to form a specific noun). This two-stage process can be quite challenging.
