ROOT-WORD is the Prefix INTRO meaning INTO & INWARD. The three ROOTS - INTER, INTRA & INTRO - must be clearly spoken and exactly understood. INTERnational means between all the nations of the world. INTRAnational means within one nation. Notice the change in spelling - intromit with a t, and intromissable with an s! The reason for that is the change in the spelling of the Latin Root - to send. Mitto becomes missi and that is carried over to the English words derived from it.
