Use of English/Word Families

Aus ZUM-Unterrichten
Wechseln zu: Navigation, Suche

Wörter aus den selben Wortfamilien sind einfach zu behalten oder zu erschließen, da sie ja alle einen gemeinsamen Wortstamm haben.

Gerade im Englischen kann man aus Adjektiven wie "empty" und Nomen wie "bottle" Verben wie "to empty" (etw. ausleeren) und "to bottle" (etw. abfüllen) bilden.

Allerdings muss man bei der Bildung die Regeln der Grammatik und ihre Ausnahmen kennen.
