DIC/DICT Latin Root Words

Today we will be blogging about the Latin root words DIC/ DICT. These Latin roots deal with many words we use everyday. . All of these words deal with words in one way or another. Some of the common DIC/DICT words are indict, indicative, diction, dictionary, dictator, and benediction The first DIC/DICT word that we will be talking about is indict.
The word indict means to charge with a fault or offense: criticize, accuse, to charge with a crime. An example sentence with the word indict could be, “The criminal will be indicted for felony gun possession in front of a federal grand jury.” This word is mostly used when talking about the legal system. When you are being indicted it is usually refers to it in a negative manner.
Another DIC/DICT word that can be used that has these roots is indicative. The word indicative means showing, signifying, or pointing out: expressive or suggestive. An example sentence is, “My instructor’s terrible mood was indicative of my bad driving skills on the road.” .The next word we will tell you about is dictionary. It is a standard book that gives a definition and origin of words. We use this when we are talking about words or a tool to understand words. An example sentences for this word is, “My teacher wanted me to grab a dictionary and look up the meaning of the word and present it to the class.”
Another word is dictator; it means a person who exercises absolute power. You will see this word used when politics are the center of discussion. An example sentence for this word might be, “Yesterday in class my teacher was acting like a dictator because she wanted absolute control over all aspects of the class.”
This next DICT word is a very important one to the DICT/DIC word family. The word diction usually refers to choice of words especially with regard to correctness, clearness, or effectiveness. An example sentence for this word is, “At the National Football League press conference the commissioner had very good diction when he spoke carefully and clearly about the performance enhancing drug problem in the league.”
The next DIC/DICT word that we use is benediction. The word benediction means giving a blessing or wishing goodness. An example of the way we would use benediction in a sentence would be, “When we went to the wedding for my cousin Charity, the priest gave his benediction then the wedding was over and they were finally married”. Benediction also has another root word bene. Bene means good and DIC means words, Benediction makes the connection with good words and benediction means giving a blessing.
So the DIC/DICT Latin root words are very important to the world of words. We use these words in our everyday life. It is the word we use to deal with w
