Assort is not a compound word because the A- is a prefix. The S is doubled when added to SORT.

RE: I - inside

Assort is not a compound word because the A- is a prefix. The S is doubled when added to SORT.


Assort IS a compound word. It is made from the words "as" and "sort"

Whatever. It's not worth arguing about.

No argument from me... we can't change the rules of grammer though...

'A compound word is a combination of two or more words that function as a single unit of meaning'

So...

AS is a single word + SORT, which is also a single word

Added together they become ASSORT, a compound word...

As I said, no argument from me, the answer is as simple as it is...
