Notes
  • I understand your point, my presentation was aimed toward the Hippology/Horse Bowl teams I coach, I find that knowing some of the 'pieces' of a term help one to deduce what the term is. It's a knowledge competition, this is a little study so during the test phase if they know these prefixes and suffixes they can at least give an educated guess on a term they may not necessarily know offhand.
