Word root: misien

Effectively, 'misien/miso' is the root for hatred and words based on this root in some way or the other signify this sentiment. Let's have a look at a few of these words:

1. Misogyny: Hatred of women (Gyny stands for women, remember what a gynaecologist does).2. Misandry: A hatred of a man or of men in general; especially by women (can you figure out what andry would stand for).3. Misanthrope: Someone who has a hatred or distrust of all people (mankind).

Using roots to learn words:

Dolorous:

Word Origin:The word dolorous comes from the Latin root 'doloro-, dolor-, dolori- , dol- +', meaning 'to feel pain, to grieve; sorrow, grief, mourning'.

There are a number of other interesting words that are derived from this source. One of those is the Latin phrase'Via Dolorosa'. This phrase means 'the road of sadness' and has Biblical origins. The road referred to here is the one followed by Jesus on the way to His crucifixion.

Another interesting word that comes from the same root is 'indolence'. This implies a dislike for work and physical action. An indolent person is basically a lazy one. The question is how is indolent related to dolorous? Indolent comes from the Latin indolentia which means “freedom from pain”. This is a further combination of two Latin roots: in, (meaning “not”) + dolere, (meaning “to suffer pain”). Hence, indolence is basically not suffering from any pain, and how do you do so: by not working, the perfect solution in a way. No work, no pain for the body to go through.
