    Civil...........

    These ROOT-WORDS are CIV & CIVIL which come from the Latin civis CITIZEN. That is what you must think of when you see CIV & CITIZEN: No. 1, relating to a citizen; No. 2, science of citizenship, etc. Even the magnificent No. 11: what is it but training to be a good citizen, with all due rights and responsibilities? Please notice No. 3 and No. 8. They look very much alike, but they are not alike, No. 3 - principles of government; No. 8 - principles of citizenship
