My dear friends
Here we are with our 3rd session hope this will help you with your English language preparation.
English language is made up of four parts
GREEK ROOTS, GERMAN ROOTS, FRENCH ROOTS, LATIN ROOTS
Now if you learn these roots you can figure out the meaning of hundreds of English language words without even knowing their exact meaning.
The first question arises here is what is a root?
A root is the part of the word which gives instructions to a word. Now how many parts is a word made of?
A word is made up of three parts.
For ex– subtracted
Sub (prefix) ——–tract (root) ———-ed (suffix)
Note: PREFIX—a word, letter or number placed before another.
SUFFIX—a letter or a group of letters added to the end of a word to change its meaning.
Consider APO or APHO as a ROOT means away, off, separate, without, absent, loss, regret, lack.
