Roots

Roots are a huge part of spelling bee and words in general. Many Latin and Greek words contain roots. But roots aren’t exclusive to those languages. For the next few days I will be investigating over roots and various words containing that root.

Roots are like the building blocks words. Each root has its own tale, as it came from its original language. Sometimes the root can have a literal meaning that is evident in the definition or a more subtle influence on the word.
