Here's an effective tool for building your Spaniah vocabulary quickly and easily. "Guide to Spanish Suffixes" contains more than 130 of the most common Spanish suffixes, along with numerous words that are formed with each. Simply by knowing the suffixes, you'll also know hundreds of useful, everday vocabulary words.

In the Introduction, the author talks about using this book as a tool for vocabulary building, and suggests that with its help you can "give [your dictionary] a rest." Whatever that may mean, it isn't quite true. Let me demonstrate this with four examples taken from the section on the -era suffix. First, "la cuchillera" is given with the English translations, "knife case, scabbard." In the Oxford Spanish Dictionary (OSP), "cuchillero, -ra" is given as "knife maker" or "knife seller," and it is "vaina" that gives the tanslations "scabbard" and "sheath." The all-Spanish Larousse Usual (LU) agrees with the OSP. However, I did find the translation given by Richmond (Devaney) in an old Appleton's New Cuyas dictionary. Second, "Gorrinera" is given as "pigsty," but again, it does not appear in either the OSP or the LU, although it is in the old Cuyas. "Pocilga" is the entry for "pigsty" in OSP and LU. Third, "lechera" is given as "milk pitcher" but it also means "milk seller" (and "milkmaid" in cuentos) and this should probably be noted. Finally, "cucarachera" is given as "nest of cockroaches; cockroach trap." It doesn't appear in either the OSP or the LU, but "cockroach nest" is given as a translation in the old Cuyas.

I like many things about this book, and wish that I could give it at least 3-1/2 stars. The discussions of the suffixes which precede the word-lists are excellent. The word-lists themselves are potentially useful. If you were to carefully select commonly-used words from the lists, checking them against a dictionary to get a full sense of their meanings, you could proceed through these suffixes--reading the book from the beginning to the end--and that would give you a very good understanding of this aspect of word-formation and would also increase your vocabulary. As it stands, a number of these words are of very little use, and to determine that you must use both a good dictionary and your common sense.
I have just read a library copy and am now ordering my own copy. It's a remarkably informative, economical, and useful book
Wished I would have had this book 30 years ago. It really makes it easy to understand and speeds up your knowledge of the Spanish language.
Although it seems to be out of print, this book was instead eaten by two other books.

I discovered this by using Amazon's "Look inside" feature while trying to decide which suffix book to purchase. The visible entry descriptions are word for word identical, and the visible vocabulary word lists are the same as well. The same author has credits on all three books. You can look too, but here is what I discovered:

1) An updated edition could be considered _Practice Makes Perfect Spanish: Vocabulary Building with Suffixes_ (Oct 23, 2014)

The Practice Makes Perfect edition adds 20 additional suffixes to the existing 130. It also groups the suffixes into beginning, intermediate and advanced levels and adds workbook exercises. A few of the definitions seem to be adjusted slightly and the formatting of the tables is tightened so that each term takes only one line.

2) The Big Red Book of Spanish Vocabulary: 30,000 Words Including Cognates, Roots, and Suffixes (September 16, 2005)

This 672 page book contains a 153 page section on suffixes. This section appears to contain the content from this _Guide to Spanish Suffixes_, as opposed to the updated arrangement in the Practice Makes Perfect update. It also claims to cover 130 suffixes and 4,600 terms so they either fit the material into 100 fewer pages due to differences in page size and font or cut something else. I could not view enough of the book to tell which.

So, if you want categorization by level and exercises, get the Practice Makes Perfect edition. If you want the original material with hundreds of pages of additional non-suffix related topics like thematic vocabulary, cognates and word frequency lists, get the Big Red Book version. If you just want suffixes, or the price is right, get this version.
This is a valuable resource for those who are pursuing specialized studies in Spanish such as translation and linguistics. The book will also be helpful to advanced students, teachers and native speakers who have an interest in the specifics of the language such as the art to vocabulary building. The book focuses on Spanish suffixes and the possible equivalents in the English language where applicable. This book will help you to grow your vocabulary, better understand the roots of Spanish words and also help you to strengthen your foundation in understanding the logical aspect in the formation of words in Spanish. For example:
Words that end in -ity- in English usually end in -dad- Spanish. Humanity=humanidad and eternity =eternidad and the gender is feminine. -ence- and -ency- in English is equivalent to -encia- in Spanish. Agency= agencia and Afluency=afluencia.
Also at the end of every suffix studied there are samples of idiomatic expressions at random that are very helpful which will also increase your vocabulary and knowledge of fixed expressions in Spanish. Examples from the book include:
1) a suplicacion- on petition or by request
2) andar en lenguas- to be the subject of gossip
3) hora punta- rush hour
4) noticia bomba- sensational news
5) huelga decir-needless to say.
I have not seen anything comparable to this guide on the market. I have owned for seven years now and it has been an educational and priceless resource.
After years of sitting in uninspired Spanish classes (I minored in Spanish in college), finally something USEFUL! If only my professors had taught us the fine points of the language like that which is in this book, rather than hours and hours of pounding verb tenses in our heads (a language is more, MUCH more than just preterit and imperfect tenses!!), I might HABLO better than I do now! FABULOUS AUTHOR AND BOOK!
