COMPANION FOR SECONDARY SCHOOLS

Ace Your Vovabulary Test without Sweat.

These teaching and practice exercises consist of most common roots and prefixes that make up the building blocks of numerous English words. This book contains adequate worksheets to help you learn, practice and enhance your vocabulary extensively.

Most English words are derived from other languages, notably Latin and Greek. This book will introduce you to hundreds of these words.

Many English words are made up of a root (or base word) and a prefix. Some words also have a suffix. Most of our English words have Latin or Greek roots. This book will help you to understand the concept of breaking down complex and difficult words with ease. For example, the root word " circum " means " around " or "to go around" by the means or in the manner specified by the verb (e.g., circumnavigate; circumscribe); on this basis forming adjectives in English with the meaning "surrounding" that named by the stem (e.g., circumocular; circumpolar). 'Circum" is a prefix found in Latin loanwords, especially derivatives of verbs that had the general senses "to encompass or surround" (e.g., circumference; circumjacent; circumstance ). Understanding these prefixes and suffixes will improve your diction power and appreciation of literature and Language Arts.

Understanding the meaning of the root word will help in extending your vocabulary and diction power and increase your understanding of the English language. This workbook is designed to make learning simple and easy for you by providing enough worksheets for practice.

This book will help you in your SAT preparation.
