  5. Greek and Latin Morphemes for…


Greek and Latin Morphemes for English Usage #1 (2nd edition)

Hello guys! I am back with one of my discussions I started about 8 months ago. I took a long break, but I returned to give you guys some more Greek and Latin Morphemes!

Here is how it will work: Once a week for the next few weeks, I am going to be posting a discussion on several morphemes in Greek and Latin for you guys to learn. I will list the morphemes first, and then I will add the English translations. You can make words out of them, tell them to friends, or do whatever you want (as long as it is reasonable:)

  1. Micr, Micro - Small

  2. Macr, Macro - Large, Long

  3. Poly - Many

  4. Mon, Mono - One

  5. Bio - Life

  6. Ped, Pedo, Pedi, Pod - Foot

  7. Path, Patho - Feeling, Disease

  8. Geo - Earth

  9. Chron, Chrono - Time

  10. Dem, Demo - People

  11. Phil - Love

  12. Graph, Gram - Write, Draw, Describe, Record

  13. Biblio, Bibl - Book

  14. Anthrop - Mankind

  15. Con, Com, Co, Col, Cor - With, Together

  16. Mis - Wrong, Badly

  17. Homo - Same

  20. Retro - Backward

Have fun!
