English is being used all over the world as an international language.
It has become a Lingua Franca and a language of greater opportunities. It also
enjoys a supreme status in society. Its sound knowledge is a successful
passport for any job. For learning any language, both the oral and written
skills are of equal importance. In fact, learning a second language is never
easy. Learners have to wrestle with new vocabulary, rules of grammar,
pronunciation and more. In learning a second language, vocabulary is the most
paramount part. It is the soul and essence of a language. It is also first and
leading stair in a language acquisition. Its knowledge plays an important role
in almost all areas of language. So, the whole process of learning a language
depends on learning its vocabulary. The current study evaluates the ways to
improve vocabulary through affixes at secondary level. It was an experimental
type of research. Three hundred and sixty students (180 males and 180 females) from
two Govt. High schools in district Bahawalpur participated in this study. Experimental
research with pretest posttest design was used. The data were collected through
tests. The findings of the study revealed a significant improvement in
vocabulary using affixes. It is recommended that quizzes, exercises and tests for
affixes should be used to enhance the vocabulary among students. The conclusion
with suggestions was also summed up at the end of the study.
