Word Root Exercise: Ology and Logy

Here is a worksheet on the Greek roots ology and logy. They mean both study of and science. You needn’t think much about these two roots to realize just how productive they are in English. People studying for careers in the health professions would do well to master these roots’ meanings.

Again, though, if you think just for a moment about these roots, you’ll see that that they head just about every department name in the modern university. Every student should know these roots.
