we can form negtive versions of words such as audible and edible in English by
adding in-to produce inaudible and inedible. How would you describe the special
phonological processes involved in the pronunciation of the negtive versions of
the following words?
到底是甚麼時候加哪個呢? 請大家替我解答 謝謝。
Could you explain about the``others''?
You can say that again!

Alright, you must be a smart dude to ask this question. So, I'll put my answers and the elaborations in English.
"In-" as a prefix to English words is used in many cases. But when used with adjectives (sometimes nouns), it suggests a negative (or privative) force. Other variant forms of it are "il-", "im-", "ir-", and "un-"
"un-" was said to be from German
"in-" was said from Latin
Rules for variants:
"il-" is used before L
"im-" is used before B, M, and P.
"ir-" is used before R.
"in-" is used on all other adjectives.
"un-" is used on words originated from verbs, such as "uninformed"
many other prefixes can also be used for privative force, such as de-, dis-, and di-.
Why don't you elaborate on their usages?

I thought that was the homework assignment I wanted you to do. And you just throw it back at me without even giving it a try?
Dude, am I the only one learning here?
