Etymology of Greek English words

2


2 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

I will give etymology of English words with Greek root
and related English words.
2 symbi per word you suggest
(nothing if word has no Greek root or I can't find related words).

Why this is useful:
Offering alternative English words, if any, that have similar root,
may help you remember their meaning.
Overall you will remember/understand your language better.
You will get the chance to learn Greek words at the same time.

Example:
pedagogy - Modern Greek (MG): παιδαγωγία =
formal practice of teaching children (in a way showing children
the right way/"leading" them)

First component - pedi/pedo = child (MG: παιδί)
Similar words -
pediatrician/pedophile/pedantic (only the first component is actually Greek here) =
child doctor/someone attracted to children/detailed to the point it's like talking to a child

Second component: agoge = upbringing (MG: αγωγή) | verb ago = lead (MG: άγω)
Similar words -
protagonist
the first of the leading roles

PS Yes it's not easy to find all of these by googling and you are free
to share any findings with me about a word before any request.
