Can you “hear” the “audition”?

From time to time I will explain to my students the Latin or Greek root of an English word. And then I will have them make up a list of related words. For English speakers and learners it’s a great way to expand and remember vocabulary.

Today, I will take a look at the variations of “hear.” The Latin root for the word “hear” are  ”audio, aud, audi, audit.”  This list is not exhaustive. If you think about it you can probably add your own words.
