💡Time for [Word-ology] again, a column making English learning easier!💡
Before today’s learning, let’s check the answers to the last episode.

abstract= abs[away] + tract [draw]
Definition: to give people social or political freedom and rights
Today we will learn the new root “fus“. It means “pour” and is used in many words. Let’s see the word “diffuse” together.
In the word “diffuse“, “dif” means “apart, in every direction“, “fus” means “pour“, “e” means “v.” By combining them together we can deduce that “diffuse” means “to pour sth. in every direction“
In Merriam-webster Dictionary, “diffuse” means “to pour out and spread freely“, which is highly similar to what we’ve deduced.
Here are one examples to use “diffuse” :
A drop of blue dye diffused in a glass of water.
Now it’s your time to figure out the meanings of the following words!
