Emotion: shake handsWelcome to the Forums! You may not be aware that we do not do homework assignments for our students, as we believe that you will learn better by doing. We also assume that, if you are given something like this as an assignment, you have probably been given some previous instruction from which to work. We'll be glad to help you with problems, but give it a try first yourself. [ Two hints: I see one word that is only a root; I think the last word is either a misprint or is made up. ]
