STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS What Is Structural Analysis? In order to derive the meanings of words, it is helpful to analyze the structure of the words in our language: Is there a Latin or a Greek root word? Is the word a base word that can stand alone? Are there prefixes and suffixes added to the base word? What are the meanings of the affixes added to the base word? Is the word a shortened form of a longer word? Examples: The word cardiac came from the Greek root cardi that means heart. The word agriculture came from the Latin root agri that means field. The prefix circum- in circumnavigate means around. The suffix in the word regretful, -ful, means full of. Gym is the shortened form of gymnasium.
