Etymologies

Tying the Social Studies vocabulary to the migration of culture across the globe, Bell 6th graders started looking at the origins of words, or etymologies, beginning with the word "anthropology" on August 26th.  Below is an ongoing list of Latin and Greek etymologies students are responsible for knowing:
 
-ology (Greek) = to study (examples: anthropology, geology, biology, psychology)
 
arch (Greek) = first or oldest (examples: archeology, archaic, archangel, monarch)
 
-phobia (Greek) = a fear (examples: triskaidekaphobia, arachnophobia, claustrophobia)
 
hemi- (Greek) = half (example: hemisphere)
 
sphere (Greek) = globe (examples: hemisphere, atmosphere, spherical)
 
poly- (Greek) = many (examples: polychromatic, monopoly, polytheism) 
 
chroma (Greek) = color (examples: polychromatic, monochromatic, trichromatic)
 
pre- (Latin) = before (examples: pregame, pretest, preview, prediction, premature, pre-Columbian) 
 
post- (Latin) = after (examples: postgame, post-Columbian)
