Inseparable Prefixes


I. Theory

In German, prefixes are used to add a nuance to a word or, sometimes, give the word an entirely new meaning. We find prefixes used in a similar way in English: “rewrite” vs. “write” or “befriend” vs. “friend”.

While separable prefixes are discussed in another lesson, this lesson will focus on the inseparable prefixes and what their general meanings are.
