    As a final workout in the Latin section of the course, here is a series of word analyses. You may agree that the toughest part of this procedure can be just getting the hyphens in the right places; once you’ve identified the components, it is often a routine task to explain them.

    < L art-i-fic-i-al-itas: art– (ars, artis, “skill”) –i– (connecting vowel) –fic– (facere, “make”) –i– (noun suffix –ium) adj. suffix –alis (“pertaining to”) noun suffix –itas
