Root Word Sect: To cut

2020-03-26T09:53:08+00:00

What do the words section, insect, and segment all have in common? All three of these words stem from the root word sect, which means to cut.

Insect, for example, has the root word sect because it looks like insects are "cut" from three different pieces.
