hi devaradh..u make a valid point to use roots. A couple of words from my side for the same:
Origin of the word Malediction:Malediction comes from the word root mal/malus, meaning bad, evil or harsh or harmful. Malediction is the sum of Mal and Diction. Diction means the manner in which something is expressed in words. Hence, malediction means the bad manner in which something is expressed in words.

Origin of the word Nascent:Nascent is derived from the Latin Root nasc-,nat-, meaning born or birth. The very root of the word points to its meaning. There are some very interesting words based on this root are

Natal: Relating to or accompanying birth.
Prenatal: Occurring or existing before birth.
Neonatal: Concerning the first 28 days after the birth of a child or pertaining to a new born. This word is the combination of natal and neo (which means new).
Another word that we use incessantly and is second nature to us comes from this source. The word is nature itself. Nature is a derivative from the Latin word natura, meaning essential qualities or innate disposition. This word is further a derivative of our root under study nat-. Originally, natura referred to the intrinsic characteristics of plants, animals, and other features of the world. These were the features one was born with or existed right at the start. Hence, the word nature comes with a reference to these qualities. In modern times, the word nature is a variety of ways. One of those uses refers to the natural characteristics of a person. The other refers to the characteristics of this world and the features of this world minus the human beings.

We can share all the words that we learn from roots here, even those from the book word power made easy.
