If you’re looking to expand your English language vocabulary, you may benefit from knowing all about word families. Word families are groups of words that have a common feature or pattern – they have some of the same combinations of letters in them and a similar sound. For example, bat, cat, hat, and fat are a family of words with the “at” sound and letter combination in common.

They can also include words that are based on a root word, with different suffixes and prefixes added, or the tense altered. For example: jump, jumping, jumps, jumped.
