The suffix -ation
As we know, suffixes are letters fixed to the end of a word to change its meaning. For example:
adore --> adoration sense --> sensation
Look again at the examples above. Do you notice how the spelling of the word changed when the suffix -ation was added?
This is because, if the word ends with ne, ve or re, we remove the e then add -ation. For example:
prepare --> preparation admire --> admiration
Not all words will need to lose a letter. Inform doesn't end in ne, ve or re so it just becomes information.
Try adding the suffix -ation to these words:
limit decorate vibrate donate create
