Adding all, till , full to words.
In this lesson we're looking at what happens when we join all, till , full to words.
that when we add full to the end of a word we drop one ' L'.
use+ full = useful, helpful, beautiful, hopeful, painful, grateful...
We also drop the 'L' when we add
full to the beginning of a word as in
full + fill =
fulfil, fulfilment, fulfilled.
Dropping one 'L' also occurs when we add
all and till to words.
Un + till = un til
We can use till on its own.
Until and till mean the same thing but till is more informal.
When we add all to the beginning of words we drop the 'L"
all + so = also
all+most = almost
alright ( all right as two words is used in formal/business English)
*altogether (note that altogether and all together do not mean the same thing. Altogether means 'in total', as in there are six bedrooms , altogether whereas all together means 'all in one place' or 'all at once', as in it was
good to have a group of friends , they came in all together all together.
