INTRODUCTION
This Qualification Paper is devoted to the theme «Prefixation in the English language and its role in enriching the English
vocabulary».
The subject matter of the Qualification paper is «Prefixation in English and Uzbek languages.
The object of the research work is Prefixation and its
classification, its productivity and non-productivity.
The main aim of the research work is the following tasks:
-to give basic peculiarities of word formation;
-affixation in the English language;
-to study prefixations in English and Uzbek languages;
-to give some examples of prefixes in the English language in comparison with the Uzbek language.
The actuality of the Qualification paper is the investigation of Prefixation in English and Uzbek languages.
The theoretical value of our qualification paper is to do through research in the field of prefixation. Besides that, it can be used in delivering lectures on English lexicology. The practical value of the work is to study thoroughly prefixation in English and Uzbek languages. The structure of the Qualification paper is as follows:

introduction, 2 chapters, conclusion and summary and the last is used literature. Introduction deals with the description of the structure of the Qualification paper.
Chapter I deals with the general notion of Word formation,
affixation in the English language, degree of derivation and homonymic derivational affixes.
Chapter II deals with prefixation, some debatable problems,
productive and non-productive word-building prefixes in the English language, and some examples in English and Uzbek languages. Conclusion deals with the theoretical and practical results of the Qualification paper.

The list of used literature deals with the list of literature used in this research work.
If we describe a word as an autonomous suit of language in
which a particular meaning is associated with a particular sound complex and which is capable of a particular grammatical
employment and able to form a sentence by itself, we have the possibility to distinguish it from the other fundamental language unit, namely, the morpheme. According to the role the play in constructing words, morphemes are subdivided into roots and affixes. The latter are subdivided, according to their, position, into prefixes and infixes, and according to their function and meaning, into derivational and functional affixes, the latter also called endings or enter formatives.

Affixation is the formation of words with the help of
derivational affixes. It is subdivided into prefixation and suffixation. Ex: if a prefix dis is added to the stem like = (dislike) or suffix ful to law = (lawful) we say a word is built by an affixation. Derivation morphemes added after the stem of the word are

called suffixes (hand + ful).
Prefixes modify the lexical meaning of the stem meaning i.e. the prefixed derivative mostly belongs to the same part of speech. Ex: like (v) - dislike (v)
kind (adj) - unkind (adj)
but suffixes transfer words to a different part of speech:
Ex: teach (v) - teacher (n) and so on.
