Context Clues
Can you put together your own context clue sentences using the example words from List #2 that have NOT been used for this Prezi?
What is a stem?
The Latin stem may be defined as the base in Latin from which a given word in Latin or in any other language is derived.

It is the form of a word before any affixes are added. In English, most stems also qualify as words.

The term base is commonly used by linguists to refer to any stem (or root) to which an affix is attached.

In fact, the rather subtle distinction between stems and roots is not extremely important conceptually, and some theories do away with it entirely.
Why study stems?
Over 70% of all English words are derived from Greek and Latin. Knowing Latin and Greek prefixes, roots and suffixes will not only help one remember word definitions but will also make it easier to determine the meaning of a new word.
The Difference between "root" & "stems"
The terms root and stem are sometimes used interchangeably. However, there is a subtle difference between them: a root is a morpheme that expresses the basic meaning of a word and cannot be further divided into smaller morphemes. So some roots are stems and some stems are roots.
