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:)
