Learn English by help of root words.

@KnowledgePhilic

My dear friends

There is one thing which always clicks in your mind after coming out of the examination hall i.e had you crossed the sectional cut-off of English language .Even for some it becomes a nightmare. My friends as much as possible we will try to eliminate this nightmare.

Here we are with our 2nd 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.

CASE 1

Consider BEL or BELLI as a ROOT means WAR, FIGHT, RESISTANCE, OPPOSES

Now with the help of this one root you can come out with conclusion of several other English words. Such as,

BELLIC—-warlike

BELLICISM—- The policy or practice of resorting to war even when it is not necessary and is avoidable.

BELLICIST—- Adherent of bellicism, advocate of war, one who is war-centred or war-oriented.

BELLICOSE—- having or showing a ready disposition to fight

BELLIGERENT—-hostile ready to fight

BELLICOSITY—- a natural disposition to fight

BELLIGERATI—- Literary people, authors — literati — who promote wars of aggression.

BELLIGERENCY—- fighting; acts of overt warfare

REBEL—-person who opposes and fights

REBELLIOUS—- resisting control or authority

REBELLER—- One who rebels or opposes

Synonyms —-Aggressive, Pugnacious, Combative, Insurrectionist, Insurgent.

Antonyms —-Affable, Amiable, Amicable.

CASE 2

ROOT —-AMI or AMO means LOVE, MORAL, EASY TO TALK TO

Now words we can guess of, such as

AMOR—- god of love

AMORET—- A love knot, love token, or love song.

AMORALLY—- without regard for morality

AMORETTE—- A petty love affair.

AMORIST—- one dedicated to love and lovemaking especially one who writes about love

AMORISTIC—- of or pertaining to romantic love

AMOROUS—- inclined toward or displaying love

AMITY—-friendly and peaceful relations

AMIABLE—-friendly, pleasant, lovable

AMIABLENESS—- a disposition to be friendly and approachable (easy to talk to)

AMOROUSNESS—- a feeling of love or fondness

Synonyms—-Friendly, Love, Attribute

Antonyms—-Unfriendly, Hate
