Reading the Signs

As I was doing this assignment, I was amazed at how often I came across a Latin morpheme. It was like literally everywhere I went, I took a picture of words that I knew just off the top of my head that could have been broken down. Since the beginning of this assignment, every time I turned my head, there was a sign with Latin morpheme’s scattered all over it. I couldn’t really take a decent picture on the highway while driving, so I took plenty at the mall (since i’m there almost everyday). To me this assignment was easy, fun, and very informative. As I continue learning about the suffixes, prefixes, and bases I begin to realize that we really do live off of Latin Morphemes. Having some memorization from some morphemes it was very easy to distinguish words. I had help from my boyfriend, but he really didn’t understand what I was doing, so when I explained it to him he started to take pictures of signs that had words that could be broken down, with it’s definition (to this day he still does this, LOL). I believe that this assignment should be used on a daily bases because it helps people understand at least what the word means. Just by knowing the root of the word can really make a difference on how you define words.
