Is there any special rule for the use of words commencing with 'in' and 'un' to give negativity?Members,
Is there any grammar rule for the use of words starting with IN and UN to give a negative sense to a word? Read the following words and understand my query, and respond.
Sufficient X insufficient (why not unsufficient)
Discipline X indiscipline (why not undiscipline)
Adequate X inadequate (why not unadequate)
Traceable X untraceable (why not intraceable)
Noticed x unnoticed (why not innoticed)
Educated X uneducated (why not ineducated)
There many such words to quote.
There may be a rule to follow. Will the ISC English experts clear this doubt.
