Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0742547809, Paperback)

Over 60 percent of all English words have Greek or Latin roots; in the vocabulary of the sciences and technology, the figure rises to over 90 percent. Through the study of the Greek and Latin roots of English, students can expand their knowledge of English vocabulary and also come to understand the ways in which the history of the English language have shaped our perceptions of the world around us.

The approach of this new fourth edition of The Greek and Latin Roots of English is thematic: vocabulary is organized into various topics, including politics and government, psychology, medicine and the biological sciences, literature, ancient culture, and religion and philosophy. Cumulative chapter exercises on tear-out pages reinforce both vocabulary already learned and analytical skills developed in previous lessons. This text will help students begin to learn not only vocabulary, but also the pleasures (and pitfalls) of language study.
