Inflectional Endings ≠ Suffixes

If inflectional endings and suffixes aren’t the same, then what’s the difference?

It’s a common misconception that inflectional endings and suffixes are the same but serve different grammatical functions. Simply put, suffixes and inflectional endings are both types of word endings that modify the meaning of a word, but they serve different purposes. Suffixes are added to the end of a word to change its meaning or function, while inflectional endings are added to indicate things like tense, number, or gender. 

This pair of printable worksheets seeks to guide your students through mastering the art of pluralizing words using the inflected endings -s, -es and -ies. Each worksheet provides a grouping of ten words that students will need to read and determine the correct inflectional ending to pluralize the word. They will then write the word in its entirety, using the correct spelling.

With these resources, students will increase their abilities to use inflectional endings and spelling rules to create plurals.
