Quiz: Dealing with unknown words
Before you dash to the dictionary, you should try and infer the meaning of the word from the context, from your knowledge of similar words or from the way the word is constructed. In particular, you may recognise parts of the word that you already know the meaning of, and from them infer the meaning of the new term.

Roots (main part of the word), Prefixes (at the start of a word) and Suffixes (at the end of a word) can be of great help.
