What is a suffix?
Suffixes are little words added to the end of a word like -ment, -ness, -sion, etc.
The suffix -sion is used to describe a state or quality of something.
divide + sion = division
invade + sion = invasion
confuse + sion = confusion
Remember these rules:
If the word ends in 'de', we drop the 'de' before adding the suffix -sion.
If the word ends in 'se', we drop the 'se' before adding the suffix -sion.
