Ok, it’s a long story, but a prompt from the AFT’s Share My Lesson Plan website made me aware that I had not, despite my best intentions, ever published this worksheet on the Latin word roots matr, matri, and mater. They mean, you have probably already inferred, mother.
This is an extremely productive root in English, showing up in words like maternal, alma mater, and the like.
