Spelling 05 - Words ending with SION

A vocabulary is a list or collection of the words or phrases in a language and the English vocabulary is full of remarkable words that give it lustre. Though a large number of words are what are known as root words or base words, there are many other words that are formed by adding prefixes or suffixes.

English pronunciation can be a little tricky with lots of words being pronounced differently from their spellings. Many examples come to mind such as the word MIGHT (where GH is silent). However, pronunciation has contributed to the development of new words with the sound of SHUN and with spellings ending with TION or SION or SSION.

You have heard of words such as COLLISION, TELEVISION, CONFESSION or SUBMISSION. These words are formed from the base words COLLIDE, TELEVISE, CONFESS and SUBMIT. In each case you see that the words end with SION or SSION. All these endings have the SHUN sound.

There are some rules that help us to form these words:

For a word ending in DE (such as COLLIDE) remove the DE and add SION (COLLISION).

For words that end in E (such as TELEVISE) remove the E and add ION (TELEVISION).

For words ending in SS (such as CONFESS) just add ION (CONFESSION).

For words ending in T (such as SUBMIT) remove the T and add SSION (SUBMISSION).

The words that have the ‘SHUN’ sound have contributed immensely to the number of words in the English language. By taking the quiz that follows you will enrich your vocabulary with some new words ending in SION.
