Book Description :

Horace G. Danner’s A Thesaurus of English Word Roots is a compendium of the most-used word roots of the English language. As Timothy B. Noone notes in his foreword: “Dr. Danner’s book allows you not only to build up your passive English vocabulary, resulting in word recognition knowledge, but also gives you the rudiments for developing your active English vocabulary, making it possible to infer the meaning of words with which you are not yet acquainted. Your knowledge can now expand and will do so exponentially as your awareness of the roots in English words and your corresponding ability to decode unfamiliar words grows apace. This is the beginning of a fine mental linguistic library: so enjoy!” In A Thesaurus of English Word Roots, all word roots are listed alphabetically, along with the Greek or Latin words from which they derive, together with the roots’ original meanings. If the current meaning of an individual root differs from the original meaning, that is listed in a separate column. In the examples column, the words which contain the root are then listed, starting with their prefixes, for example, dysacousia, hyperacousia. These root-starting terms then are followed by terms where the root falls behind the word, e.g., acouesthesia and acoumeter. These words are followed by words where the root falls in the middle or the end, as in such terms as bradyacusia and odynacusis.. In this manner, A Thesaurus of English Word Roots places the word in as many word families as there are elements in the word. This work will interest linguists and philologists and anyone interested in the etymological aspects of English language.

Book Description :

Dr. Horace Gerald Danner’s A Thesaurus of Medical Word Roots is a compendium of the most-used word roots of the medical and health-care professions. All word roots are listed alphabetically, along with the Greek or Latin words from which they derive, together with the roots’ original meanings. If the current meaning of an individual root differs from the original meaning, that is listed in a separate column. In the examples column, the words which contain the root are then listed, starting with their prefixes. For example, esthesia, which means “feeling,” has as its prefixed roots alloesthesia, anesthesia, and dysesthesia. The listing then switches to words where the root itself forms the beginning, such as esthesiogenesis or esthesioneuroblastoma. These root-starting terms then are followed by words where the root falls in the middle or the end, as in acanthesthesia, cryesthesia, or osmesthesia. In this manner, A Thesaurus of Medical Word Roots places the word in as many word families as there are elements in the word. This work will interest not only medical practitioners but linguists and philologists and anyone interested in the etymological aspects of medical terminology.

Book Description :

One of the outstanding problems of the biologist, whether he be beginning student or specialists, is that of understanding technical terms. The best way to understand and remember technical terms is to understand first their component parts, or roots. This dictionary has been designed primarily to meet the needs of the beginning student, the medical student, and the taxonomist, but it should be of value to all biologists.

Book Description :

This book lists almost 1,500 roots of academic, professional, and technical words. This is not a thesaurus in the common sense. Unlike the familiar collection of synonyms, this thesaurus gathers words with the same root words with similar meaning. The authors have distinguished a variety of these word elements and given them technical names, such as Simple Root, Prefixed Root, Leading Root Compound, and Trailing Root Compound. Horace Danner and Roger NoÎl's previous books include An Introduction to an Academic Vocabulary (UPA, 1990) which is recommended as a companion to this thesaurus.

Book Description :

In 1852 Peter Mark Roget eclipsed a rich tradition of topically based dictionaries with the publication of his Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases, Classified and Arranged so as to Facilitate the Expression of Ideas. Based on intuition as much as on specific linguistic principles, Roget's book has been a bestseller ever since and is one of the most widely-used reference works ever published. In this book Werner H--uuml--;llen gives the first history of its genesis and publication, and investigates the principles of its structural design. The author opens with an account of Roget's life and his background in natural science. He then charts the parallel histories of dictionaries of synonyms and concepts within the general context of lexicography. Synonymy, he argues, is a necessary feature of languages without which communication would be impossible. He traces its theory and practice from Plato to the emergence of French and English synonym dictionaries in the seventeenth century. Roget's was the first such book to be arranged by topic and the first to encompass the semantic network of the entire language. The author examines the manner and method of its compilation, the practical outcomes of the traditions on which it was based, and the ways in which the Thesaurus reflects and reveals Roget's beliefs and background. A History of Roget's Thesaurus will interest students and scholars of linguistics, semantics, and lexicography, as well as anyone wishing to know more about a great literary achievement and an astonishing publishing phenomenon.

Book Description :

What are “Root Words”? A root or root word is a word that is used to form another word. It is also called a base word. A root does not have a prefix (a letter or group of letters added to the beginning of a word) or a suffix (a letter or group of letters added to the end of a word). The root is the primary lexical unit of a word, and of a word family. For example, pure is a root. By adding prefixes and suffixes, the following words could be made: impure, purity, pureness Similarly, play and move are root words. By adding prefixes and suffixes, the following words could be made: plays, played, playing, player moving, movement, moved, movable, mover, movingly In this book, I have given the most common Greek and Latin roots which are used in English language. Sample This: Root Words -- A AGG Origin: Latin | Meaning: collected Examples: agglomerate -- to collect things and form them into a mass or group | related word: agglomeration aggrandize -- to increase your importance or power | related word: aggrandizement aggregate -- to put together different items, amounts, etc. into a single total | related words: aggregation, aggregator ****** ALTR/ALTER Origin: Latin | Meaning: other Examples: altruism -- caring about the needs of other people | related word: altruistic alterable -- that can be changed | related word: unalterable altercation -- noisy argument alternate -- to follow one after other | related words: alternately, alternation, alternative ****** ANIM Origin: Latin | Meaning: breath; life; soul Examples: animal -- a living creature animate -- having life; to make something full of liveliness | related words: animated, animatedly, animation, animato, animator, inanimate animateur -- a person who promotes social activities animism -- the belief that natural objects have a living soul | related words: animist, animistic animosity -- a strong feeling of opposition equanimity -- calm state of mind magnanimous -- kind, forgiving, generous | related words: magnanimity, magnanimously pusillanimous -- lack of courage unanimous -- agreeing with others | related word: unanimously ****** Some More Root Words -- A Root Word [Origin] -- Meaning | Example(s) (Related Words in Bracket) a [Greek] -- not | atheism, apolitical, atypical ablat [Latin] -- remove | ablation ablut [Latin] -- wash | ablutions abort [Latin] -- born too soon | abortion abras [Latin] -- rub off | abrasion (abrasive, abrasively, abrasiveness) abstemi [Latin] -- controlled; moderate | abstemious abund [Latin] -- overflow | abundance (abundant, abundantly) ac [Latin] -- to, toward | accept (acceptability, acceptable, acceptably, acceptance, acceptation) acanth [Greek] -- thorn | acanthus acet [Latin] -- vinegar | acetate, acetic, acetone achr [Greek] -- colorless | achromic acid [Latin] -- sour | acidic, acidify, acidosis, acidulate (acidulation, acidulous) acm [Greek] -- summit | acme aco [Greek] -- relief | aconite acous [Greek] -- hear | acoustic (acoustical, acoustically, acoustician, acoustics) adama [Greek] -- invincible | adamant (adamantly) ade [Greek] -- enough | adequate (adequacy, adequately) adip [Latin] -- fat | adipose adolesc [Latin] -- growing up | adolescent (adolescence) aer [Greek] -- air or atmosphere | aerate (aeration), aerial, aerialist, aerobic (aerobics, anaerobic) agr [Latin] -- field | agrarian, agriculture (agriculturist, agricultural) ****** Other Root Words -- A Root Word [Origin] -- Meaning aapt [Greek] -- indomitable, unfriendly abact [Latin] -- driven away abdit [Latin] -- secret/hidden ablep [Greek] -- loss of sight abr [Greek] -- delicate abscis [Latin] -- cutoff absit [Latin] -- distant aca [Greek] -- a point; silence acar [Greek] -- tiny accip [Latin] -- allow, snatch accliv [Latin] -- steep; up-hill accresc [Latin] -- increase ace [Greek] -- heal acer [Latin] -- sharp acerv [Latin] -- pile acest [Greek] -- healing; remedy

Book Description :

This updated version of the 2000 original is still the only complete resource on the market for finding word parts needed to express a concept. Aside from catering to those who wish to expand their vocabulary, the purpose of this dictionary is to provide convenient word parts to those who may be interested in inventing or deciphering words bearing an established and embedded meaning. Like the first edition, this work is split into three parts presenting the prefixes, suffixes, combining forms, and roots that fit together to form words in English. Part I, the Dictionary proper, provides an alphabetical listing of nearly 4,700 word parts, each entry including a brief definition and two examples of words using that unit. This section benefits from several additions, the most notable of which are embedded etymologies for each entry. Part II, the Finder, is a reverse dictionary of word parts allowing users to start with a meaning or concept and then find word parts which express that meaning. Still the only reverse dictionary of its kind, Part II is updated with over 1,000 new search terms. Part III collects word parts in another reverse dictionary under 18 convenient categories. Each pre-existing category has been expanded when possible, and three entirely new categories have also been added (Eating, Experts, and Measurement Science).

Book Description :

The average contemporary English speaker knows 50,000 words. Yet stripped down to its origins, this apparently huge vocabulary is in reality much smaller, derived from Latin, French and the Germanic languages. It is estimated that every year, 800 neologisms are added to the English language: acronyms (nimby), blended words (motel), and those taken from foreign languages (savoir-faire). Laid out in an A-Z format with detailed cross references, and written in a style that is both authoritative and accessible, Word Origins is a valuable historical guide to the English language.
