2 - Read Words or not really words

Sometimes adding suffixes does not work because there is already a simpler root word with the same intended meaning or the suffixes are not working properly. Write either "correct" or "incorrect" into the answer box for each of these words.

If you are feeling a bit lazy, I'll allow a simple "N" or "Y" or "true" or "false" .
