Word Root Exercise: Gon/o,

Here is a worksheet on the Greek roots gon/o and -gony. They mean reproduction, origination, and generation. Unsurprisingly, then, you’ll find gon/o at the base of gonad. Otherwise, besides cosmogony, (and, alas, gonorrhea ) the words on this worksheet are all new to me. If the book from which they are drawn is believable, these are words that will turn up on the SAT.

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.
