This question already has an answer here:
I frequently come across words like
versprechen, erhalten, beliefern. Because my vocabulary is limited, i can detect that the verbs
sprechen, halten and liefern were spoken but i do not know what
ver-sprechen, er-halten and be-liefern mean. Is there a
definite meaning of prefixes like these?
How should i tackle this topic of prefixes so that when a verb with a prefix is spoken, i can guess/know what it would mean. Thanks
