Before today’s learning, let’s check the answers to the last episode.

Definition: having many twists or curves. The word can also be used to describe something that is extremely complicated and difficult to follow
Today, we are going to learn a new etymon ”duc‘‘ with the word ”conducive”. The etymon ”duc” means ”lead” and it is used in many words!
The word consists of three etyma. The first “con” means “together” and strengthens the tone. The second “duc” means “lead“. The third one “ive” tells us that this word is an adjective. By combining them together, we can easily deduce that the meaning of the word “improvise“ is “lead (goodness) towards sth.”
And in Collins Dictionary, it says that “if one thing is conducive to another thing, it provides benefits to make the other thing likely to happen“, which is highly similar to what we’ve deduced.
Now it’s your time to figure out the meanings of the following words!
That’s all for [Word-ology] today!
