Word Root Exercise: Dia-

Here is a worksheet on the Greek word root dia-. It means through, apart, and cross. This is a productive root in English, yielding such high-frequency words as diameter, diagonal, dialogue, and diaspora; these are words that, respectively, will turn up in mathematics, English, and social studies classes, as well as many other places in students’ primary and secondary educational lives.
