Write one to two sentences explaining how the knowledge of etymology benefits readers.

The history of words is etymology. You can use the understanding to work out the meaning of words if you know where a word starts. The comprehension of etymology can help readers learn knowledge about terms that have a certain patter, and correctly spell words. (Using an example from a lesson here)

    Flowers, trees, and areas with heaps of grass have vegetation. In the initial statement, the author notes that in wildland vegetation, wildfires burn. The background clues I was given were, "Wildfires will burn and have been doing so for hundreds of millions of years in forests, grasslands, savannas, and other habitats."

A list of terms and their meanings, spelling, and synonyms, and antonyms are provided to readers by dictionaries. This will assist readers to improve their vocabulary. Typically, this source goes from A to Z. This illustrates the various ways in which the word can be used, and whether it is a noun or an adjective—etc.

  8. As a teacher for one of the Connections Academy schools, I have this website bookmarked. Any of my students that have this answer or a similar answer will be marked as plagiarism and an honor code violation. Even if you change some of the words, it is still plagiarism because you are taking someone else's ideas and using them as your own. Additionally, before every assessment you agree to the following:
    For this assessment, I promise the following:
    I will submit my own work.
    I will not give or receive any unauthorized help.
