Scientific Spelling: Unit 27 Spelling Words
A combining form is a word part found in the Greek language. Much of the Greek language is composed of words with multiple combining meanings. The difference between a combining form and a root is that Greek combining forms usually hold the same importance of a word. Ten to twelve percent of our language comes from Greek.
This week, we are focusing on the Greek combining forms graph/gram- and meter/metr-. The combining form “graph/gram -”, means “write/draw.” The combining form “meter/metr-”, means “measure”.
