The first thing I noticed was that all my words except for the oddball started with prefixes. The three different catergories I sorted my words by were mis, dis, and pre. The prefix mis means wrong or incorrect. For example the word misspell means to spell a word incorrectly. The prefix dis means not. For example if you disagree with someone you do not agree. The prefix pre means before. For example we take a pretest in math to show the teacher what we know before the unit test. The word precocious is an oddball because it does not follow the prefix pattern
