ROOT-WORD is GREG which comes from the Latin grex & gregis meaning HERD, FLOCK & MOB. From that rather sour meaning we have developed the better words, GROUP, TROOF & CROWD. The burning word in the list is No. 15, seGREGation, and it is good to be able to know just why it means what it means. No. 19 is the opposite of No. 18. What we need is peaceful conGREGation of all peoples and races so that we can have a peaceful world to live in. Live and let live is a maxim for all.
