mega & megalo

These ROOT-WORDS are MEGA & MEGALO which mean very LARGE. We now have three ROOTS with the meaning LARGE and every one of them means something different. MACRO means large in size, physical largeness. MAGNA means large, great, principally in the spiritual sense. MEGA means huge in the abnormal, diseased sense, diseased both in mind and in body. Be aware of the idea, the unique personality of each ROOT.
