What Are Inflectional Endings?
An inflectional ending is a cluster of letters that is added to the end of a word to change either the tense (if that base word is a verb) or the number (if the word is a noun).
For example, when the inflectional ending -ED is added to the base word WALK, it changes it to the past tense WALKED.
And when the inflectional ending -S is added to the root word DOG, it becomes the plural DOGS.
