DID YOU KNOW?
The Latin noun vox ("voice") and verb vocare ("to call") have given rise to many English words, including convoke. Other English descendants of those roots are usually spelled with voc and have to do with speaking or calling. Thus, a vocation is a special calling to a type of work; an evocative sight or smell calls forth memories and feelings; and a vocal ensemble is a singing group. Provoke, irrevocable, e
quivocate, and vociferous are a few of the other descendants of vox and vocare. The related noun convocation refers to those whom have been called together.
