Latin Root: DON?

by Isabel

Dear Latin Teacher,

What does the Latin root don mean?

Thanks, Isabel

Dear Isabel,

English words from this Latin root usually have something to do with giving.

Here is a link to English derivatives from donum, the Latin word for "gift".

Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
