Micro Concept: Building Vocab through root word

The construct of the literature of a language begins with “letters”. When these letters are arranged in a proper sequence then make sense, these sequences are called words. The collection of all the words used in a language is called Vocabulary.
Nobody (not even Shakespeare) can claim that he/she knows complete English vocabulary. So, we should not make it our objective. For a career in management, one should be well versed with commonly used words in conversations and reports. Memorizing words can a daunting task but if understand the logic behind the constructions of the words, it can make our job easier. Most of the words are combinations of roots, prefix, or/and suffix.
