Word Root Exercise: Tele, Tel, Telo

Here is a on the Greek word roots tele, tel, and telo. They mean distant, end, and complete. You’ll find this root, somewhat abstractly, at the basis of words like telegenic, telegraph and telegram (mostly obsolete nouns now, I suppose), and telemetry, all of which are included on this worksheet–which means, if the author of the book from which this work is drawn remains correct, these words are likely to show 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.
