Tenth Grade Objectives for Dickenson County Schools

The student will be able to explain the meanings of the following vocabulary words. Greek and Latin have been the sources of most of the words in the English language. The roots (sometimes called stems) of these words have been included so that the student will learn those as well; knowing the Greek and Latin roots will help the student to guess at the meanings of new words that he/she will run into elsewhere. A great majority of these words could be encountered on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and similar standardized tests. Most of them are in the vocabularies of well-educated Americans. TESSAR/TETR: comes from the Greek word for “four.” A tessera is the small and usually four-sided piece of rock or tile used to make mosaics. Tessellation is the technique of making mosaic, or of covering a surface with identical shapes that fit exactly without covering or overlapping each other; a floor covered with square tiles is a simple example. 1. tetracycline: a yellow crystalline antibiotic effective against a wide range of organisms He was sent home with a prescription for tetracycline. Antibiotics work against bacteria and other tiny organisms that sometimes infect the body, though not against viruses of any kind. Tetracycline, which comes from a kind of soil bacteria, is one of the most used antibiotics. It can be effective against acne, Lyme disease, cholera, rickets, and various lung and eye infections among other things. Its name means “four-ringed” – that is, it consists of four fused hydrocarbon rings. Most chemical names are made up of a series of Greek and Latin roots strung together. 2. tetrahedron: a solid shape formed by four flat faces Box kites are often made with tetrahedrons rather than squares or triangles. The simplest tetrahedron is made of four equal-sided triangles: one is used as the base; and the other three are fitted to it and each other to make a kind of pyramid. The pyramids of Egypt, however, are not tetrahedrons: with a square base and four triangular faces, this shape is five-sided. 3. tetralogy: a set of four connected literary, artistic, or musical works The Raj Quartet, Paul Scott’s long and complex tetralogy of India, was made into a highly praised television series. Vivaldi’s Four Seasons can be called a tetralogy, since it is a set of four violin concertos, one for each season of the year. Eight of Shakespeare’s history plays are often grouped into two tetralogies. Wagner’s great Ring of the Nibelung, an opera tetralogy based on Norse mythology, contains about 18 hours of music. But we have no complete examples of the original tetralogies, sets of four plays performed together in ancient Athens. The first three were always tragedies; the last was a wild comedy. 4. tetrapod: a vertebrate with two pairs of limbs His special study was the great seismosaurus, probably the largest tetrapod – and the largest land animal – that ever lived. The earliest tetrapods (or “four-footed” animals) were mammal-like reptiles that evolved before the rise of the dinosaurs and ranged form the mouse-sized to cow-sized. Today the tetrapods include the reptiles, the amphibians, the birds, and the mammals – including humans. CAPIT: from the Latin word for “head,” caput, turns up in some pretty important places. The captain of a ship is the head of the whole operation; the capital of a state or country is the seat of government, where the head of state is located. A capital letter stands head and shoulders above a lowercase letter, as well as at the head of a sentence. Week Three
ANTHROP: comes from the Greek word for “human being.” An anthropomorphic god, such as Zeus or Athena, basically looks and acts like a human. People often anthropomorphize their pets, seeing them as small, furry human beings rather than as animals. Week Four
CUMB/CUB: can be traced to the Latin verb stems cumb-, “to lie down,” and cub-, “to lie.” A cubicle was originally a small room for sleeping (“lying down”) that was separated from a larger room, though now it can be any small area set off by partitions, as in an office. Week Five
DYNAM: comes from Greek and means “to be able” or “to have power.” Dynamite has enough power to blow up the hardest granite bedrock. A dyne is a unit used in measuring force. An instrument that measures force is called a dynamometer. GRAD: comes from the Latin noun gradus, “step” or “degree,” and the verb gradi, “to step, walk.” A grade is a step up or down on a scale of some kind. A gradual change takes place in small steps. The gradient of a steep slope might be 45 degrees. Week Seven
LAT: comes from a Latin verb that means “to carry or bear.” From this root come relation and relative, a person you are related to, whether you like it or not. You might be elated, or “carried away by joy,” to get free tickets to a rock concert, but your elderly relative might not share your elation. Week Eight
CRIT: comes from a Greek verb that means “to judge” or “to decide.” A film critic judges a movie and tells us what is good or bad about it. Her critical opinion may convince us not to go, or we may overlook any negative criticism and see it anyway. Week Nine
JUR: comes from the Latin verb jurare, “to swar or take an oath,” and the stem of the noun jus, “right or law.” A jury, made up of jurors, makes judgments based on the law. A personal injury caused by another person is “not right.” PENT: comes from the Greek word for “five.” The Pentagon in Washington, headquarters of the Defense Department, has five sides like any other pentagon. A pentatonic scale in music has five pitches, rather than the seven in a major or minor scale. Week Eleven
QUINT: comes from the Latin meaning “five.” Quintuplets are babies that come in sets of five. A quintessence is literally the “fifth essence,” the fifth and highest element of ancient and medieval philosophy, which was supposed to be in the celestial bodies. Week Twelve
BIO: comes from the Greek word for “life.” It forms the base for many English words: a biosphere is a body of life forms in an environment; biology is the study of all living forms and life processes; and biotechnology uses the knowledge acquired through biology. Week Thirteen
GEN: generates many English words. Their basic meaning is “come into being” or “be born.” The root occurs in gene, the most fundamental of biological architects, and in genealogy, the study of family roots. Week Fourteen
FUNG/FUNCT: comes from the Latin verb fungi, “to perform, carry out, or undergo.” A car that is functional is able to perform its function of providing transportation. A functional illiterate is a person who manages to get by in society without the reading and writing skills possessed by most other members of the society. Week Fifteen
MUT: comes from the Latin mutare, “to change.” Plenty of science-fiction movies have been made on the subject of weird mutations, changes in normal people or animals that end up causing no end of death and destruction. More often that not, it is some mysterious or alien force that causes the unfortunate victim to mutate. Week Sixteen
FRAG/FRACT: comes frm the Latin verb frangere, “to break or shatter.” A fraction is one of the pieces into which a whole can be broken; recipes typically call for factional parts of a stick of butter or a cup of flour. The dinnerware on which food is served is often fragile or easily broken. A person whose health is easily broken might be described as frail. Week Seventeen
TELE: has its basic meanings “distant” or “at a distance.” A telescope looks at faraway objects, a telephoto lens on a camera magnifies distant objects for a photograph, and a television, for better or worse, allows us to watch things taking place far away. Week Eighteen
PHIL: comes from the Greek word meaning “love.” In philosophy, it is joined with Sophia, “wisdom,” so philosophy means literally “love of wisdom.” When joined with biblio-, “book,” the result is bibliophile, or “lover of books.” Philadelphia, containing the Greek word adelphos, “brother,” is the city of “brotherly love.” To live up to the name, its inhabitants should all be committed to philanthropy, or goodwill toward their fellow human beings (anthropos being Greek for “human being.”). Week Nineteen
NEG: and its variants nec- and ne- are the prefixes of denial or refusal in Latin. The Latin verb negare, “to say no,” is the source of our English verb negate. A negative is something that denies, contradicts, refuses, or reverses. Week Twenty
DEC: comes form both Greek and Latin and means “ten.” A decade lasts for ten years; a decahedron is a geometrical shape with ten sides; and the decimal system is based on 10. Week Twenty-one
CENT: means “one hundred,” from the Latin centum. Our dollar is made up of a hundred cents; other monetary systems use centavos or centimes as the smallest coin. A centipede has what appears to be a hundred pairs of legs, though the actual number varies greatly. But there really are a hundred years in a century. Week Twenty-two
NOM: comes from the Latin word for “name.” A nominee is “named” – or nominated – to run for or serve in office. A binomial (“two names”) is the scientific name for a species; the domestic cat, for example, has the binomial Felis catus. A polynomial, with “many names,” is an algebraic equation involving several terms. Week Twenty-three
PATER/PATR: from both the Greek and the Latin word for “father,” is the source of many English words. A patriarchy is a society or institution in which ultimate authority rests with the father or the men of the family. A patron is one who assumes a fatherly role toward an institution or project, typically giving moral and financial support. Week Twenty-four
LEGA: comes from the Latin legare, meaning “to appoint” or “to send as a deputy.” A legation consists of a group sent on a special mission, especially a diplomatic mission to a foreign country. A legatee, on the other hand, is the person appointed to receive a legacy or inheritance. Week Twenty-five
GREG: comes from the Latin grex, “herd” or “flock.” Bees, wolves, people – any creatures that like to live together in flocks or herds – are gregarious animals. People who greatly enjoy companionship, who are happiest when part of a rowdy herd, are highly gregarious. Week Twenty-six
FLU/FLUCT: comes from the Latin verb fluere, “to flow.” A flume is a narrow gorge with a stream flowing through it. A fluent speaker is one from whom words flow easily. Originally, influence referred to an invisible fluid that was believed to flow from the stars and to affect the actions of humans. Week Twenty-seven
PREHEND/PREHENS: comes from the Latin verb prehendere, “to seize.” It is the root of such English verbs as apprehend and comprehend. For some derivatives of words formed from this root, the d is changed to an s, as in apprehensive and comprehensive. Week Twenty-eight
TEMPER: comes from the Latin verb temperare, “to moderate or keep within limits” or “to mix.” It comes into English in words like temperature. Tempered (as in tempered steel) means “to harden by reheating and cooling in oil or water.” Tempered enthusiasm, similarly, is enthusiasm that has cooled a bit.
