ible and able word endings

What’s the rule?

When we cannot identify a root word, we most commonly add ible, eg legible. When you can identify the root word this means that you are able to, therefore we add able. Eg forgivable means you are able to forgive.

Sort these word beginnings to the correct ible or able ending. Add more examples if you can think of any.

leg___

value______

invinc______

terr______

ador_____

dispos______

ed___

horr_____

break______

enjoy_____

agree_______
