ROOT WORDS A root is the basic element of a word. It is the foundation on which the meaning of the word is built. Prefixes and suffixes are added to root words to form new words. Example: The root of the word biography is bio. bio = root word that means life biography = a story of a person’s LIFE When you come across a word for which you do not know the meaning, finding the root of that word can help you figure out the word’s meaning. Example: What does the word thermos mean? The root therm means heat. A thermos is a container that keeps a liquid HEATED and warm. While some roots can be words by themselves, others need to be combined with other word elements in order to form a word. Example: Dict is a root word that needs other word elements to make it a word. dict is a root that means to speak diction is a word that refers to the manner of how words are used when SPEAKING © Copyright NewPath Learning.
