"Just as we need to teach children the alphabetic components—sounds of individual letters or combinations of them—so that they can systematically decipher the words on a printed page, so we need to teach vocabulary from the beginning as a system of component parts—roots and affixes—that have been handed down to us in a remarkable degree of preservation from the Latin and Greek of ancient times." — Joégil Lundquist, Author
