Question:

When should the term "usted " be used, rather than "tú" when having a conversation?

Inactive
Alma R.
Answer:

Something to keep in mind is that both terms mean "you", yet are used in different ways to refer to a certain individual and their relationship. "Usted" is usually used when speaking to another individual whom you highly esteem or is much older than you are. It can also be used for someone you don't know well. The term "tú" is usually used when speaking to another individual around your age or someone whom you know well. This can depend by spanish speaking countries.

Question:

What is the difference between a Prefix and a Suffix?

Answer:

A Prefix is a letter or set of letters before the root word, making it a new word. Here's an example: re-apply (the prefix here is re-). A Suffix is similar however, the letter or set of letters go after the root word, or end of the word. Here's an example: psych-ology (-ology is the suffix).
