English Derivatives: Credo
Dear Latin Teacher,
I am in Latin class doing a project on English derivatives and I cannot find many English derivatives of the word credo.
The Latin verb credere means to believe or to trust in. Its perfect participle is creditum.
From these two Latin roots, we get many English derivatives: credible, incredible; credentials; credit, discredit; accredidation; credence.
Using a dictionary, can you discover how each of these English derivatives relates the Latin verb?
Hope this helps, and thanks for asking a Latin teacher.
