Infographic: The Arabic Language Root System

Nearly every word in Arabic is based on a combination of three letters that together form a root, with each root representing a different concept. By applying different vowel and stress patterns to these roots, you can derive dozens of different words from it.

This graphic displays 31 words all derived from the Arabic root , ج م ع and organizes them based on their parts of speech.

This resource also contains a game to help deepen students' understanding of the Arabic Root Language System.
