Bellomo, Tom S. – TESL-EJ, 1999
Demonstrates that etymology as a word attack strategy for second language students does not offer an unfair advantage to students whose first languages are Latin-based.

Palumbo, Anthony; Kramer-Vida, Louisa; Hunt, Carolyn V. – Preventing School Failure, 2015
Direct vocabulary instruction of Tier 2 and Tier 3 words in intermediate-grade curricula is an important tool of literacy instruction because English is a language grafted from many roots and has not developed a one-to-one phoneme-grapheme correspondence. In addition to knowing graphemes and phonemes, students must formally learn words that cross…

Delgado Bernal, Dolores; Burciaga, Rebeca; Flores Carmona, Judith – Equity & Excellence in Education, 2012

Perez B., L. A. – Hispania, 1977
Several Latinisms appear in Latin American Spanish, which would logically be farther from its Latin roots than Spanish in Spain. The existence of these elements and their importance as linguistic facts is analyzed here. Four words are treated: "Cliente,""cuadrar,""cuarto" and "rabula." (Text is in Spanish.) (CHK)
