Do you know the difference between the words, "suggest" and "suggestion"? We suggest you take this lesson to find out!
Suffixes are units that can be combined with a root or base word.

In this lesson, we will review the suffix, "–tion," which sounds like /shun/. This addition means "state or quality of."
Definition: Fulfilling someone’s wishes or needs
Given the definition of –tion, see if you can solve the following word equation:
Cooperate = Work together for the common good
Cooperate + -tion = Cooperation
