Root Words!

As we look ahead to the PSAT test this month, we need a way to gain even more Vocabulary Power!

For the next three weeks, we will learn Root Words. These cognates of the English language will give you the skills to break down unknown diction into smaller chunks to build an approximate meaning. For students who know French or Spanish, you will recognize many of these Roots as the English language has "borrowed" their vocabularies.

Where are the roots?

For this first Root Word quiz, please study the roots from "a" to "anti"
