# 15.21: The Set of Bound Bases miss and mit

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

## The Set of Bound Bases miss and mit

1. In the miss, mit set there is a verb-noun pairing for the bound bases miss and mit much like others with which you've worked:

Verbs Nouns
commit commission
emit emission
intermit intermission
omit omission
permit permission
remit remission
submit submission
transmit transmission

In this array verbs have the base __________ and nouns have the base _________.

2. Mit and miss come from a Latin verb that had the meaning “let go, cause to go, send.” Those root meanings are fairly clear in most of the words in this array, if you remember the meanings of some prefixes:

$&ad- \text{â€œto, towardâ€} && inter- \text{â€œbetween, amongâ€}\\ &com- \text{â€œwith, togetherâ€} && re- \text{â€œagain, backâ€}\\ &ex- \text{â€œout, awayâ€} && trans- \text{â€œacrossâ€}$

Be ready to discuss the connections you see in these words between what the prefixes and bases mean and what the words mean today.

3. Combine these elements into words, showing any changes that take place when the elements combine:

Elements Word
trans + mit + er
com + miss + ion + er
com + miss + ar
miss + ile
com + mit + ment
ex + miss + ion
sub + miss + ive + ly
miss + ion + ary
dis + miss + al

4. Now try some the other way around. Analyze these words into prefixes, bases, and suffixes, showing any changes:
