1.1.8 Journal: Explore EtymologyJournalEnglish IV Sem 1Points Possible:20Name:Amber AstranDate:Start by looking up and explaining the meaning and origins of three Latin expressions oftenused in English. Use each one in a sentence of your own. Then move on to explain the meaningof words from various titles. The titles come from actual articles written by experts in differentdomains: math, science, social studies, and the arts.Use an etymology dictionary to figure out the meaning of the root and prefix or suﬃx (or both) inthe words and expressions in each prompt. Then explain the meaning of the word or expressionand its different parts.Sometimes you'll be able to look up the whole word or expression in your etymology dictionary.Other times it might make more sense to look up small parts of the word or expression and thenfigure out what they mean when pieced together. Take your best guess about a word's definitionbased on its root and prefix or suﬃx, but feel free to look the word up in a dictionary after you'veattempted.
When you answer, don't just copy the explanation from the dictionary. Explain the meaning inyour own words as best you can. If you need to use the exact text from your sources, be sure toput quotation marks around the text and say where it came from.
