Abstract

Derivational affixes are affixes that are added to root words to produce new words
that have different meaning or part of speech. The objectives of this research are
to find out the derivational affixes in The Hunting Party novel by Lucy Foley and to
explain the formation of words containing derivational affixes found in The Hunting
Party novel by Lucy Foley. The research design of this research is descriptive
qualitative. The data are analyzed by separating root words and affixes based on
a list of words containing derivational affixes in the table, classifying words that
contain derivational affixes based on their part of speech, and drawing the
conclusions. The results of this research show that derivational affixes found in The
Hunting Party novel by Lucy Foley are a-, un-, im-, dis-, in-, re-, over-, pre-, under-
, pro-, non-, dys-, ir-, il- as prefixes and ly-, -tion, -ship, -ment, -less, -ion, -ate, -
