We’re already at “D” in our journey through classical base words. If you’d like a refresher of posts past, help yourself:
I will absolutely be taking a second look at affixes from Greek and Latin, but for now I’m looking at base words (sometimes called root words). It’s a short list again this week, but useful!
|dei, divin||god||deity, divinity|
|dexter, dextr||right hand||dexterity|
|dic(t)||say, speak, tell||predict|
|dos(e), dot(e)||give||dosage, antidote|
|duc, duct||lead (verb)||induce, deduct|
|dyam||power, strength, strong||dynamic|
