In this word sort, you will become more familiar with 3 common suffixes used to make people nouns, and you will analyze what type of word takes each suffix.


Pair Base and Person Suffix

Match the following words into pairs. You will find a base word and a related word that ends with a person suffix.


Categorize by Suffix

Sort the pairs into 3 categories, based on the person suffix. Then analyze the groups to figure out why each group gets that suffix.
