My Word Lists
I love how two roots that basically have different meanings (mono - one; poly - many) areblended to have a completely new word and meaning. It makes perfect sense as a monopoly has everything controlled by a single entity.
Least Favorite Word:
This word just NEVER flows off my tongue. It never sounds right to me. I can't imagine how much I might hate it if I couldn't say my Rs!
