Latin Root: Liberi
Dear Latin Teacher,
, meaning children, stem from same Latin root as "liberty", as one might suspect?
The Roman word for children, liberi
, means literally the free ones, as opposed to the slaves, i.e. servi
So yes, the two words liberi
have the same root meaning.
Hope this helps and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
