Etymology: How Root Words can boost your English Vocabulary

Interpreting and comprehending different words in the English vocabulary are prime qualities of a good reader. However, for the little minds of your children to possess these assets seem quite difficult. For, they may not have learnt all of them. Still, why take the joy of reading away from them?

In addition, most of the words in English language have their origin from Latin and Greek roots and just by adding prefixes or suffixes in front or at the end of the root(s) word families can easily be understood. Hence, a sound knowledge of root words becomes as significant as any other practice.Etymology How Root Words can boost your English Vocabulary
