Words from porto.

I am up late grading student homework right now.   In one class, the vocabulary class, I told the students to use English words that came from the Latin word Porto.   Porto means “I carry”.  

This student went above and beyond:

1.  The porter did not comport himself well, and, therefore lost his job.

2.  The portly man was difficult to transport.

3.  Portfolios are designed to make papers more portable.

4.  The colporteur attempted to export his ideas to others.

5.  At a Greek museum, it was purported that the rapporteur paid more attention to the amphora in his peripheral vision than he did to the important speech that he was supposed to be reporting.
