    Question

    Dear sirs,
    I have one problem that I need your help.
    I think "worthful" and "worthless" can be used. But in your tests, you said that we can only use "worthless", so could you be kind enough to explain me the reason why? (in the test "less or ful")
    Sincere thanks!

    Welcome to the forums.

    Have you checked in a dictionary that both words exist?

    Re: Question

    It is not a common word. "Worthy" is the more usual antonym to "worthless".

    Checking it on this site indicates that it is not a word much used: worthful - OneLook Dictionary Search

    It also does not appear in the British National Corpus. It appears once in the American National Corpus.
