How to Play
Add a letter or two... or three (or more) to the front of the following Latin-derived roots. The answers should be common words (and some perhaps a bit less common). NOTE: I won't say which, but I will say that some of these roots may lose their leading 's' when an 'ex' is added as the prefix. In addition, a few words may be created by adding more than one prefix to the given root.
