How is the word decide related to the meaning of the Latin root CID?
The root word cis and its variants cid and -cide come from a Latin root which means 'cut' or 'kill. ' A decision, for instance, is a 'cutting off' of all possibilities except for one; if you are decisive you have 'killed' all other options.
