Vocabulary is a fundamental part of language learning. This book practices English vocabulary by selecting some of the most important roots in Latin as the focus for studying their derivations together by comparing their meanings and practicing affixation. Latin roots form the basis of the major part of modern English vocabulary, especially the type of vocabulary that students need to learn in order to progress to more advanced levels. Latin also provides a rich variety of prefixes and suffixes which work together with the roots to produce new vocabulary. This book provides a unique opportunity for students of English to learn important new vocabulary, to examine how words are formed and to generalize across the roots how affixes create and change meaning. The book consists of explanatory notes on the history of Latin words in English, notes on pronunciation and prefixation, explanatory notes on the roots, and a hundred exercises practising over one thousand words.
