Latin Root: PURGARE
Hello! :) What can you tell us about the latin root 'purgare' /to cleanse/ and its derivatives.
English has purge
, meaning to clean. And how about expurgate
, to purge or cleanse of moral offensiveness.
If you are of certain religions, there is purgatory
, where souls go to be cleansed before entering heaven.
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
