Word Root Exercise: Man, Mani, Manu

Last but not least today, here is a worksheet on the Latin roots man, mani, and manu. This is an extremely productive set of roots in the English language. Have you sat for a manicure lately? Then you already know these roots mean hand.

You’ll also find these three roots at the root of commonly used words in English like manuscript, manipulate, manual (think manual labor–work done with one’s hands), and manufacture. All of these are words students will need to know before they graduate high school.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
