Hebrew words are formed around roots by adding particles at the beginning, middle and end of the root.
Prefixes and suffixes are attached to a root to create words, and infixes can be inserted within a root to modify its meaning.
Prefix :A group of letters (mini word) added at the beginning of a word, in front of the root, to specify its meaning.
Suffix :A group of letters (mini word) added at the end of a word, after the root, to specify its meaning.
Infix :A letter or group of letters (mini word) inserted within a word to modify its meaning.
Example with the root « ה-ל-ך »
