What's the root or base of the word "Deceit"? Or it doesn't have any?
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here is the etymology of the word:
Main Entry: de·ceit
Etymology: Middle English deceite, from Middle French, from Latin decepta, feminine of deceptus, past participle of decipere
The word, "deceit," doesn't have a root word.
