I thought "Demo" was the word meaning people and not "Dem" without the last O.

It's been long time since I last checked your Voca-bility posts... It seems you even reached "V"... I'll check them all when I have time.

You're correct in a sense, as the actual Greek root is "demos." However, with most of these roots, Vocab-ability presents them as they are currently used in English.

Since this root is used in words ranging from "democracy" to "epidemic" to "demagogue," I presented only the "dem" version.

(Also, I've uploaded all the A-V (there are no stems starting with W, X, Y, or Z.) But I'm reposting A-F, since the original post did not have the specially formatted, colored boxes.)
