READING STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS What is Structural Analysis in Reading? In order to derive the meanings of words, it is helpful to analyze the structure of the words in English: Is there a Latin or a Greek root word? Is the word a base word that can stand alone? Are there prefixes and suffixes added to the base word? What are the meanings of the affixes added to the base word? Is the word a shortened form of a longer word? Examples: The word autograph came from the Greek root graph that means write. The word video came from the Latin root vid that means see. The prefix semi- in semifinal means half. The suffix in the word childless, -less, means without. Lunch is the shortened form of luncheon.
