    Learning English; Compound words

    What are compound words? Compound words are words that are made up of two or more words. For example, if we have butter( food) and fly (action word), the compound word will be butter + fly = butterfly (insect). The new word that is formed by combining the words is completely different in meaning from the original words. Lets look at the compound words below;-

    a. neck + tie= necktie
    b. foot +ball= football
    c. air + port= airport
    d. head +man= headman
    e. time +table= timetable
    f. fire +man= fireman.

    Thank You for posting these kinds of questions on this site it will help many of the parents and children as well. By these questions it will be and easy task for the parents to make their children learn about the particular subject this is a good question and my one of the suggestion is that you should also give the children an answer key so that they can match their answer with the questions and they can know what is the correct answer for that particular question and can remember it for a long period of time. And it is a great way of increasing the IQ of a child so that he or she can remember a question for a long period of time thanking you again for posting these questions and please post more and more questions of these types.

    It is ideal for you to stop copying and pasting responses in this site. It is wrong as the site frowns at this.
