Add a D on the end to make it Dollars.
TRILLION DOLLARS=TR-L D
We are taught a few more arbitraries.
Apartment, Concern, Condition, Idea, Unusual, Purchase etc.
(In the reference manual, it lists arbitraries by lesson, I fold the paper in half and write. then check answers. I have already forgotten a few:))
Prefixes and suffixes. I haven't thought about these for awhile. Sometimes I wish I paid better attention in English class.
Prefix FORE = FOER
Suffix FORE =FO*ER
Prefix OUT= YOUT
Sufix OUT = JOUT
Prefix OVER = YOEFR
OVERRULE = YOEFR/RAOUL
Suffix OVER = JOEFR
HANGOVER = HANG/JOEFR
Prefix UNDER = YUND
UNDERLINE = YUND/LAOEUN
Suffix UNDER = JUND
THEREUNDER = THR/JUND
Prefix UP = YUP
UPROAR = YUP/ROER
Suffix UP = JUP
CHECKUP = KHEK/JUP
I am still wrapping my head around this whole thing. In the video, she said we write this way to prevent conflicts. I will have to take her word for it, because it doesn't make a lot of sense.
I will be emailing support about this. Why couldn't we use DLT? Maybe to save strokes? I do not know. She says this is an easy lesson, however, this is giving me a "WHAAAA" moment. Maybe I am over thinking it, which is usually my problem.
Update 7/5/14 I am having a hard time with 10. The whole Y and J are throwing my brain for a loop. I can keep up with the audio if I leave them out. But writing with them is proving difficult. And she is talking so fast in this drill. It is gonna take me awhile to pass this lesson:(
Okay, so I now have the Prefixes and suffixes down. I am still not 100% on the numbers. I am working on memorizing them. I still have a couple days left on this lesson. This lesson is as hard as 7 for me. Maybe some people can pick this up faster. But I could not. Adding a J or a Y was very unnatural. My sister's theory added a asterisk to the prefix or suffix. I wonder if that would have been easier.
I am done with ten!!! This lesson was hard for me but I am officially half way through theory!!! Wow 10 Lessons in 10 weeks. Pretty good. My aim was 6 months. It looks like I will meet that goal. I am not going to move on to 11 yet. I want to do a day or two of just review. I have learned a lot so far. I want to make sure I have retained everything, especially the arbitraries.
