Knowing Greek and Latin word parts helps with reading comprehension and can be an effective shortcut to learning a lot of words. By learning one word part, you can potentially learn multiple words. This section will demonstrate by using one word part, “scope.” Derived from the Greek, “scope” means to watch or see. You will find a kaleidoscope of words using this root. If you want to see stars, you use a telescope, and if you want to see something really tiny, you use a microscope.
