Matt Striker's Word of the Week for 02/20/07
Hello, my students. It is I, Matt Striker, your teacher and I welcome you to this condensed classroom session.
This week's crash course is in a specific suffix. Now, before you simpler students run off to look up what suffix means, allow me to bestow this week's word.
My Word of the Week is pugilaster. Now, you may recognize the prefix, pugil- as in pugilist: one who likes to fight. But, can you tell me what the suffix -aster means? That, of course, is your assignment.
Feel free to e-mail me, of course, at the address linked below and define the suffix -aster. Then use pugilaster in a sentence. That is my assignment for you from me, Matt Striker, your teacher.
