Student or Learner
Hi guys, I'm currently working through some of my English work, and I came across this piece of reading.
Currently working on affixes, and I had a query regarding them.
With Derivational Suffixes, can I change 'Assign' which has in itself its own meaning, to 'assignment' which has an entirely different meaning? Is it really a derivation if it doesn't have the same meaning?
Please let me know if I've been unclear.

I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
By the way, remember that the possessive "its" does not have an apostrophe.
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
