Spelling this week!
Prefix ex- The prefix ex means "out" or "beyond. " It is added directly to roots beginning with the letters t or p. The letter x is never doubled. No commonly used words begin with the letters exs. The letter x itself makes the sound of s or z. Mnemonic device: X marks the spot between the prefix and root. Don't add any ex-tra letters!
