Root Word Sect: To cut

2020-03-26T09:53:08+01:00

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. Many different words come from the root word sect, and it's easy to see why, if you look at the words all together and compare them. Insect, for example, has the root word sect because it looks like insects are "cut" from three different pieces. An intersection, where two roads come together, comes from the root word sect because one road "cuts" another.   This is just part of the reason why we [...]
