Terms in Etymology Transparency Program
In this transparency program, we explore the most common terms in the study of etymology … the study of how words are formed. Each transparency defines a term, gives several examples, and demonstrates how words are created. Terms covered are root word, prefix, suffix, prefix/root/suffix, compound word, synonym, antonym, homonym, heteronym, and acronym. The program includes 10 transparencies, originals, and teaching suggestions. Grades 5-11.
