  • son – sound – resonate – sound echoes inside of something (thanks Arthur W)
  • spec, spic – look, see – spectator – one who watches
  • spir – breathe – respirate – to breathe
  • spont – by one’s own force – spontaneous – describes an activity undertaken for no particular reason but whim
  • tang, tact – touch -tangible -capable of being touched

and then finished our discussion of “Rink Keeper’s Sestina.”  Monday we’re in the lab. I’m going to ask you to write a Sestina of your own for Tuesday.  Be WARNED…
