  1. "inter" = prefix [a preposition in Latin, meaning "between"]

    rupt = root [comes from the Latin word rumpo ... ruptus meaning "to break"]

    ion = suffix

    And yes, "plac" is the root [from the Latin verb placeo meaning " to please"]

  3. You're welcome.

    If you take Latin, or at least study Greek and Latin prefixes, roots, and suffixes, you'll greatly expand your vocabulary.
