thanks for the knowledge able post and education like your post bro 😊

Ah.... Cracy = Goverment. I always used the world "Rule" but yeah, it's the same right?

It's bad that the word Democracy was stripped from it's original meaning. And it's sad that we as humans aren't fit for the true Democracy. A good example for this would be steemit. A place governed by it's people, it shows how freedom can be easily used against the best of the group.


Good point. Democracy is often not democracy.

Remember back in 2001, the US decided to bring "democracy" to Iraq. But democracy is not defined as "death and destruction." :-(

Shame on the defilers of democracy.

your post so interesting <3
Thanks for sharing, i really appreciate it.


Hello, Trang

As a student of foreign language, this series of Vocab-ability posts should be very helpful and useful to you. I have already posted about 50 of these, and will continue to post many more.

If you open this link and scroll down ... https://steemit.com/writing/@majes.tytyty/f-vocab-ability-a-more-powerful-vocabulary-this-post-includes-all-entries-beginning-with-the-letter-f-revised-and-updated ... you will find the links to all the posts of the first chapter of Vocab-ability.

Soon, I will start posting the individual entries each day. That will give you a good chance to learn words at a nice, easy, slow pace.

Good luck, and please pass on the Vocab-ability links to your fellow students if you think they will benefit from them.



thank you so much <3
I will pay attention to your suggestion !

Great sources of grammar learning.Suffixes and prefixes.I am giving NTS test and your articles help in preparation.Thank you :)


These posts will surely help to boost your knowledge. But if you want to remember all of them, it's best if you do lots of reading too.

Vocab-ability is a study / resource tool. It will help you learn, but it's only one part of your educational materials. If you read lots and listen to many vids, etc, you'll learn and remember more.

Best of luck.

This came at the right time for me, @majes.tytyty! Will be on the lookout for new words from you in the future.


There's plenty coming your way. I generally post every day or 2 now.

Soon, I will start posting the individual entries DAILY. That should give you a great opportunity to learn many new words, at a slow, easy pace.

Thanks for sharing that the way to grow steemeducation You are always doing good thanks for posting this knowledge

good one @majes.tytyty or in Latin "good uni" as in in unit, unite, unity, unicorn - though uni is a prefix so perhaps it does not techically fit in the unique list of words with Latin roots.


Uni will appear in the "Numbers" chapter. Hope you can wait. :-)

There are many words that start with c, but why you choose words that includes c?


I do not understand the question.


i mean these are not starting with c, as this lecture is to built vocab about C.
But Example words are not starting with c letter.


All the SUFFIXES in the example start with "C". A suffix is at the END of a word, so the "C" will not be at the beginning.


I wasn't aware of that, Thanks for increasing my tiny knowledge brother!

Ahah. Completely unrelated, they used to call me miniscule lady, because I am kinda short :D That is how I know the meaning!

nice posting @majes.tytyty. that's very helpful to remind me about 'suffixes' I've ever learned in my faculty.
