what is the root word for release? what is the prefix and how does the prefix change the meaning?

  1. I agree. The root is release.

  2. Try using http://www.etymonline.com to look up words and find their roots, prefixes, etc.

  4. Same here, with 5th grade homework. At first I thought the root word would be "lease", but I guess not.
