1 Ancient Latin Stems, Lesson III

2 VITA means life. Something is vital if it is full of life. Vitamins keep us alive; and to revitalize a neighborhood is to fix it up and bring it back to life!

3 VID means look. We look at videos; evidence is brought out to look at, and we provide for the future by looking (vid) forward (pro)!

4 PATER means father. Paternal behavior is fatherly, a patriarch is the male head of the family, and to be an expatriate is to live outside the fatherland!

5 MATRI means mother. Maternal means motherly, a matriarch is a female head of the family, and matrimony is marriage!

6 POP means people. You are popular when people like you; the population is the people, and a populous region is full of people!

7 Advanced Word: Patriarch The word patriarch (PAY-tree-ark) contains the Latin stems patri (father) and arch (rule). A patriarch is a fatherly figure who rules a family. Sometimes a family has a matriarch instead of a patriarch, and in that case the family leader is a female, such as a strong grandmother.
