Words that begin with Im- and Un-

Another great trick that is definitely worthwhile knowing is using prefixes. The prefix im-, for example has two possible meanings when it's placed at the front of a word: not or in. A person who is patient is able to accept or tolerate delays, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious. But on the other hand, a person who is impatient is someone who is having or showing a tendency to be quickly irritated or provoked. See how the prefix changes the definition of the word?

In most cases, words that have the prefix un- sitting in front are opposites. When something is believable it means that something is able to be believed; credible. But when you put the prefix un- in front of the word you make the word unbelievable. This means that something is not able to be believed; unlikely to be true.
