  4. I got: non, de, compose, able, ity. Is that correct?
    This is correct, I think, since "compose" can be a word on its own. If you learn it's not correct, though, separate the root (pos) from the prefix (com).

    For your other question, please go to http://www.google.com and enter entailment semantics

  5. If com and pos can be separated just like able and ity, shouldn't I separate them now? I know com is a prefix but I didn't know pos is a root.

  6. -pon- is the root of the Latin word meaning "to place" -- pono, ponere, posui, positum.

    See the 3rd entry down for a good explanation of the etymology of "compose" in its parts. But since it has a complete meaning as "compose," I don't think you'd have to take it apart for morpheme identification. (For phoneme identification, that would be different!)
