“G” – Vocab-ability – A More Powerful Vocabulary (This post includes all “G” entries)

in writing •  last year

This post comprises all the “G” entries of the Vocab-ability series. It includes many English words whose etymology can be traced to Greek and Latin roots.    

If you learn one root, you can learn, understand, and use each and every English word derived from that root. Vocab-ability is an easy-to use resource guide to help you understand those roots.    

In total, this Vocab-ability post features 10 entries that begin with the letter “G."

Yes!! an Entry I already fully know!!.... Geo = Earth. and I learned it by using not from books...

Surprisingly I thought "G" would have more entries than this.... and more surprisingly I never thought "graph" meant writing, I thought it was more "drawing"... well, forgot that the "image" part of Photograph is photo and not graph...

Hmmm.... it's a long way until "P"... but "Photo" means "light" isn't it?


Yep. But I'll let you wait for the full "P" post.
