I've come across a list of English prefixes and remember learning in school about Latin and Greek being helpful for learning words in English based on prefixes/suffixes. I'm wondering though if there is a way to learn all of the English prefixes and suffixes by learning a set of languages or just a part of them or whatnot. If not all, then most of them. Basically I'm wondering if there is a system for learning the patterns of the prefixes / suffixes so that you could understand novel words without previously knowing their definition.
