Spellings – 1.11.16

The prefix ‘in’ is used to mean ‘not’
When you add in- to a root word, you do not change the spelling of the root word. Sometimes you do have to change the spelling of in.

If you add in- to a root word beginning with l, in becomes il-.
Legal = illegal

If you add in- to a root word beginning with m or p, it becomes im-.
Patient = impatient, mobile = immobile

If you add in- to a root word beginning with r in- becomes ir-.
