Making morphemes meaningful mini-workshop July 7th 2022 7-8:30pm (PD465)
YES, IT WILL BE RECORDED AND MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU AFTERWARDS.
“Is there an app I can use to help me break words into prefix/base/suffix?”
Unfortunately, that takes a human brain! The good news is, you can learn how to do this quickly and easily with some guidance and practice.
Come and join Lyn Stone for a 90 minute training workshop on breaking words into morphemes.
- We’ll start with a look at how words are formed in the first place.
- Then we’ll look at how prefixes behave.
- We’ll look at the difference between bound and unbound bases and how to spot the tricky ones.
- We’ll look at the two types of suffix and how they interact with bases and each other.
- We’ll also head over to Etymonline and look at how this resource is structured so that you can get the very best out of it.
We’ll study a plethora (pleth + or + a) of polysyllabic (poly + syl + lab + ic) words, ranging from very simple, to very complex, on a gradient so that you barely notice the change!
Suitable for primary and secondary teachers who wish to deepen and broaden their morphological knowledge.
- A recording of the session for two weeks after the live event
- Handouts for the session
- Templates to use in the classroom
- Links to many fabulous morphology resources
PLEASE NOTE: This session will be recorded and the footage will be used at a later date in an asynchronous online course.
WHEN: July 7th 2022 7-8:30pm Melbourne time

Every time I do a Language for Life workshop, I can’t help wishing we had more time. The parts of speech are so interesting, so dynamic, I feel like we’re only scratching the surface sometimes.
So let’s split each major word category into seven segments:
