practical value of the work is to study thoroughly prefixation in English and Uzbek languages.
The structure of the Qualification paper is as follows:
introduction, 2 chapters, conclusion and summary and the last is used literature. Introduction
deals with the description of the structure of the Qualification paper.
Chapter I deals with the general notion of Word formation,
affixation in the English language, degree of derivation and homonymic derivational affixes.
Chapter II deals with prefixation, some debatable problems,
productive and non-productive word-building prefixes in the English language, and some
examples in English and Uzbek languages. Conclusion deals with the theoretical and practical
results of the Qualification paper.
The list of used literature deals with the list of literature used in this research work.
If we describe a word as an autonomous suit of language in
which a particular meaning is associated with a particular sound complex and which is capable
of a particular grammatical
employment and able to form a sentence by itself, we have the possibility to distinguish it from
the other fundamental language unit, namely, the morpheme. According to the role the play in
constructing words, morphemes are subdivided into roots and affixes. The latter are subdivided,
according to their, position, into prefixes and infixes, and according to their function and
meaning, into derivational and functional affixes, the latter also called endings or enter
formatives.
Affixation is the formation of words with the help of
derivational affixes. It is subdivided into prefixation and suffixation. Ex: if a prefix dis is added to
the stem like = (dislike) or suffix ful to law = (lawful) we say a word is built by an affixation.
Derivation morphemes added after the stem of the word are
called suffixes (hand + ful).
Prefixes modify the lexical meaning of the stem meaning i.e. the prefixed derivative mostly
belongs to the same part of speech. Ex: like (v) - dislike (v)
kind (adj) - unkind (adj)
but suffixes transfer words to a different part of speech:
Ex: teach (v) - teacher (n) and so on.
Chapter I. Word-formation and its basic peculiarities.
Word-building is one of the main ways of enriching vocabulary. There are four main ways of
word-building in modern English: affixation, composition, conversion, abbreviation. There are
also secondary ways of word-building: sound interchange, stress interchange, sound imitation,
blends, back formation. Affixation is one of the most productive ways of word-building
throughout the history of English. It consists in adding an affix to the stem of a definite part of
