“C” is for cookie, that’s good enough for me…
“C” is the next stop on our journey through classical base words. This is our longest list so far, and there are quite a few helpful base words in here; you might want to take some notes. As always, this list is taken from Appendix C in Greek and Latin Roots: Keys to Building Vocabulary, with some small changes of my own in the “Example” column. You can see the “A” words here and the “B” words here.
Remember, these are base words, or stems: these are the main “chunks” onto which affixes are added, rather than actual affixes.
