Just realized that the terms "ana" and "kata" for movement through four-dimensional space are from Greek.

ana - up / back, see analect, anachronism
etymonline.com/word/ana-#etymo

kata - down / through, see catatonic, cataclysm
etymonline.com/word/cata-#etym

Dreamed that I adopted a cat which I immediately adored, but then became suspicious that it was actually a lion cub

It glues word roots together and makes up definitions for them, basically just by madlibbing the meanings of the roots together

Also - I didn't get a chance to say hi at the last Wordhack but I wanted to say I'm super excited to use both gutenberg-dammit and the poetry corpus. I really appreciate that work!

That is, not something to parse a word like that but just a list of those kinds of elements

Does anyone know of any machine-readable corpora, dictionaries, etc. containing English morphemes, word roots, etc?

Something that would list the component parts of words, e.g. de-fenestr-at-ion or what have you

Apologies for jumping accounts so much I swear I just want to be chill and post online
