In an earlier post, three groups shared their investigations of <civil>, <slavery>, and <abolish>. These last two groups investigated the words <immigration> and <emancipation>.
While both groups uncovered some truths regarding these words, I’m left wondering about other words that share the same base. For instance, I never considered <emancipation> a compound word before. Indeed the students convinced me with their evidence. But I’m not quite satisfied yet. What other words have the base <man> with the same denotation? I crave examples of the bases <cip> and <migr> as well. I feel that there is still so much to bring to light in these investigations. Good thing we have tomorrow 🙂
