Word Root Exercise: Duc, Duct

Here is a worksheet on the Latin word roots duc and duct. They mean to lead. You’ll find this root in a variety of high-frequency words in English, including conduct, deduce, deduct, and seduce. You’ll also find it in aqueduct and abduct.

So, there are a total of eight words on this worksheet, all of them, nearly inarguably, words students should know before they graduate high school. I hope this document presents an efficient way to inculcate these words into students’ vocabulary.

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.
