Noun derivative - a verb that becomes a noun by adding a suffix.

You sometimes come across words which have been derived from their roots by adding certain structures like prefixes and suffixes.

You sometimes come across words which have been derived from their roots by adding certain structures like prefixes and suffixes.
In your earlier years of schooling, you must have been done with exercises and development activities on the use of prefixes
A prefix- is a group of letters added before a word or base to alter its meaning and form a new word. In contrast, a suffix is a group of letters added after a word or base.
5 Example of prefixes:
ana- up, back, again analogy, anatomy, anagram
anti- against antipathy, antiwar, antisocial
apo- from, away from apology, apologize
com- with, together communal, community
con- with, together connect, confide conspire
there are so many example of this. i hope it helps. remember that an adjective derivative is a noun, verb and adjective that becomes an adjective by means of adding affixes.
In this lesson, you will deal with deriving words through the use of suffixes.
A suffix added to the end of a root word.
5 Example of suffixes:
Suffixes Meaning Example
-ics things having to do with optics, physics
-ism the belief in pacifism, terrorism, socialism, communism
-logy study field of biology, geology, etymology, cardiology
-or, -er one who takes part in doctor, actor, teacher, driver
-sis act, state, condition of analysis
We have, for example, a verb that becomes a noun by adding a suffix.
This is called a noun derivative
A noun that becomes an adjective by adding a suffix is called an adjective derivative
Example of Adjective Derivative:
subject- subjective
addict- addictive
react- reactive
success- successive
care- careless
ugly- ugliness
hope- hopeless
steel- steely
accept- acceptable
obey - obedient
there are so many example of this. i hope it helps. remember that an adjective derivative is a noun, verb and adjective that becomes an adjective by means of adding affixes.
These are but few ways by which we can identify how words are derived.

SOURCE: what is inflection of nouns? Can you please give

Inflection is used to indicate a) number, b) case or c) gender in nouns, verbs and other parts of speech. The result is that a word will often become slightly altered, or letters are added to it, in order to show that a shift (in number, case or gender) has taken place.
It is found in many languages of the world, especially common in European languages, including Old English, but less commonly found in Modern English.

Concerning NOUNS

a) To indicate number (singular vs plural): goose / geese; ox / oxen; child / children; medium / media; book / books; alumna / alumnae, etc.
Sometimes the form stays the same however: deer / deer; sheep / sheep, etc.

b) To indicate case:
In English: possession or "genitive case": Paul / Paul's (of Paul); dog / dog's (of the dog), etc.
In German: possession or "genitive case": Mann (man) / Mannes (of the man) - Der Hund des Mannes (The man's dog).
Also in words like Tuesday [Tu's Day]; Wednesday [Weden's Day --> Wodan's Day]; Thursday [Thur's Day --> Thor's Day], etc.

c) To indicate gender:
Often found in words borrowed from other languages:
alumnus (male) / alumna (female); alumni (male plural) / alumnae (female plural), etc.
Even in names: Marc / Marcia; Andrew / Andrea; George / Georgia, etc.

I hope this is helpful.

What are possessive nouns

Possessive Form of a noun.
To express possession one appends an apostrophe followed by s ('s). That is the possessive form of the noun.
The paw of the tiger : the tiger's paw. Tiger's is the possessive form of the noun tiger.
When the noun is a plural ending in s, the possessive form could be ...s's or ...s'. Both forms are correct. If you are a student and your teacher insists on using one form rather than the other, do as you are expected. Once you start writing your own books, use the form that pleases you. It is just a matter of usage, and usage is changing all the time.

Does anyone know how to calculate derivatives using the casio fx-115es? For example: find the derivative of f(x)= 3x^3=3x. Thank you!

The calculator will calculate the derivative at a point. It will not give you the formula for the derivative, just the derivative at the point you choose.
Sorry, it can ONLY do NUMERICAL differentiations and integrations.
