Word Root Exercise: Corp/o, Corpor, Corpus

Here is a worksheet on the Latin roots corp/o,corpor,and corpus. They mean, collectively, body. While that is literal in the sense of the human body, as in corpse or corporeal, it is also figurative, as in corporation.

This is a very productive root in English as well as across the Romance languages. Students would benefit from knowing it, I submit. But what do you think?

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.
