  1. indigestion

    since the prefix "in-" means not able to, with "in-" the word "indigestion" would mean not being able to digest, or break down food. in contrast, if the word "indigestion" didn't have the prefix "in-" it would mean the opposite of "indigestion." this makes the word "digestion" without the prefix "in-".
