111 Greek and Latin Roots for Gifted Learners 111 Greek and Latin Word Parts To differentiate spelling and vocabulary for my gifted students, I incorporate words with Greek and Latin origins. This list is a compilation of 111 Greek and Latin roots with meanings and an example English word. Groups of Five Related Words In addition to the list of 111 word parts, I made 35 groups of 5 related words. For example, in the “cred” group, I listed the words: accredited, incredibly, incredulous, credible, and creditor. Five Task Cards I also developed several activities for working with these words parts. Think Like An InventorGreekymons!

42 commonly confused English words (a.k.a. homophones!) « The Copywriter's Crucible Photo Courtesy: ktpupp/Flickr I was skimming through some of my pals’ Facebook statuses the other day when I read something that made me cringe. A friend had commented on a photo of a marathon runner, and the caption read something like this: “Fast as lightening.” I’ll give you three seconds to spot the error. Three. Two. Time’s up! Don’t see the problem? Let me explain: Unless my friend meant that the marathon runner was as fast as “the descent of the uterus into the pelvic cavity occurring toward the end of pregnancy”—which is what the noun, “lightening,” actually means—(and, I’m pretty sure she didn’t), it’s clear that she fell into one of the English language’s biggest grammar traps: homophones. What my friend meant to say was that the runner was as fast as a bolt of lightning—a flash of intense electric light that illuminates the sky during a storm. Confusing? But that’s why I’m going to impart some grammatical wisdom to you. There – There’s a funny smell in there. Peek – Don’t peek!

Etymologically Speaking... From the old Arabic word "hashshshin," which meant, "someone who is addicted to hash," that is, marijuana. Originally refered to a group of warriors who would smoke up before battle. Aaron White adds: You may want to explore the fact that the hashshshins were somewhat of a voodoo-ized grand conspiracy scapegoat cult (the very fact of their existence is impossible to confirm). They supposedly were a secret society (a la the FreeMasons) which was influential in every middle eastern court from Persia to Bangladesh. They were supposedly a brotherhood of assasins, devoted to their caballa and its secrecy, protected by an unlimited number of fanatical followers and unlimited material wealth. Paul Graham adds: The assassins were a sect of warriors who controlled a number of fortified towns in Persia for about 200 years. R.
