This article presents instructions by the author about vocabulary development. For standardized tests and research papers, it's important to know how to spell and use words correctly. Throughout the English language, Latin and Greek roots, suffixes, and prefixes appear again and again, and in different combinations. Once you know what the roots mean, it will be easier to learn and remember the meanings of new words. The article presents 10 words which are rooted in Latin or Greek. Some of these words include: antecedent, audible, bellicose, benevolent, chronicle, and epilogue.
