Product Description
English has its roots in many languages; one of which is the language spoken by the Romans, Latin. The Romans brought this with them as they conquered which is why French, Italian, Spanish and even Romanian are based in the Latin language.
Today, most people consider Latin a ‘dead’ language, meaning no one culture or nation uses it. This could not be farther from the truth; you use it every day as its roots form a good deal of English. The roots, prefixes and suffixes of Latin are found throughout our language and in words you may or may not know the meaning of. For example the word: misnomer. It comes from two Latin words that, if you know the roots, you can figure out the word and its meaning. Why is this important you ask? Well, many of the words you will encounter on the SAT are Latin based, and often the key to getting a right answer hinges on your ability to decode those words, even if you do not know the meaning.
Students look at these words and then create their own phrases in several categories.
Examples are provided so students can get an idea of what needs to be done.
