1.1.8 Journal: Explore Etymology Journal English IV Sem 1 Points Possible: 20 Name: Amber Astran Date: Start by looking up and explaining the meaning and origins of three Latin expressions often used in English. Use each one in a sentence of your own. Then move on to explain the meaning of words from various titles. The titles come from actual articles written by experts in different domains: 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) in the words and expressions in each prompt. Then explain the meaning of the word or expression and 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 then figure out what they mean when pieced together. Take your best guess about a word's definition based on its root and prefix or suffix, but feel free to look the word up in a dictionary after you've attempted.
When you answer, don't just copy the explanation from the dictionary. Explain the meaning in your own words as best you can. If you need to use the exact text from your sources, be sure to put quotation marks around the text and say where it came from.
