put





This
ROOT-WORD is PUT which comes from the Latin putare, meaning to THINK. Here is a fine instance of the value of knowing many ROOTS to combine and recombine with a Root. PUT means THINK, a very limited picture. With the addition of 13 prefixes and suffixes, handy little ROOTS, a wealth of languages has surrounded this bare little Root. These ones have opened to us the world of I.B.M., a delegation, a debate, arguments, accusation and public opinion. The ROOTS are priceless!
