Philanthropy is the “activity of loving the human” race by being very generous to those in need.
Today we’re celebrating our 50th rootcast. Hooray! We’ll re-cap (or “take again”) some of the highlights of Word Root Of The Day rootcasts, and summarize what we’ve learned.
The word ingredient Memlet, shown below, is one of many ways that a word is taught in Membean.

This year we’ve covered Latin, Greek … and beyond with eponyms. You’ve seen infographics that get into assimilation rules and mnemonics. We’ve talked about prefixes (e.g.: pre-, re-, con-), stems (e.g.: ven, grad, sid), and variant forms (e.g.: fic, fect, fact). These episodes are all publicly archived and are worth studying a second or third time. We won’t remove anything here, so go ahead and bookmark them for future reference.
We kicked off the series with one of our favorite roots, phil: “love.” Philadelphia, for instance, is the city of brotherly love.
Like Philadelphia’s phil, many roots have a memorable—and often simple—word that you can use to remember the root.
Stayed tuned for the next 50, as we make our way toward the century mark, or 100th rootcast. Be sure to tell your friends and teachers about Membean!
