    Question Prefixes

    Hi, I'm preparing a practical work about prefixes and I have some questions that I could not find their answers; can you help me with them? or provide me a link where I can find them. Thanks

    - Can you find any relationship between the accentuation prefixes receive and the number of syllables the whole word has?

    - Can you find any relationship between the accentuation prefixes receive and the accentuation the root word would receive?

    -Can you find any relationship between the accentuation prefixes receive and the part of speech the word resulting from the addition of a prefix to a root word is?

    - Is there any relationship between the way the prefix is pronunced and its accentuation?

    - Is there any relationship between the accentuation the prefix receives and the number of syllables it has?

    Thanks again! Celeste.
