"eu-" - "Well"; "easily".

[Greek "eu", "well", from "eus", "good".]

Examples derived directly from Greek words include "euphony", the quality of being pleasing to the ear (Greek "euphonia", based on "phone", "sound") — the valved brass musical instrument called the "euphonium" derives from the same root; "eulogy", a speech or piece of writing that praises someone or something highly (Greek "eulogia", "praise"); "euphoria", a feeling or state of intense excitement and happiness (Greek "euphoros", "borne well", "healthy", from "pherein", "to bear").

Examples created in English on Greek roots include "euthanasia", the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease (Greek "thanatos", "death", so literally "easy death"); "eutrophication", excessive richness of nutrients in a body of water (Greek "trephein", "nourish"); "eukaryote", an organism whose cells contain a nucleus (Greek "karuon", "kernel"); "eubacterium", the "true" bacteria and cyanobacteria, as distinct from archaea.

The opposite is "dys-". See also "eury-".

"eu"

This ROOT-WORD is the Prefix "EU" meaning "PLEASANT", "WELL" & "GOOD". Look at No. 2 and you will find the charmer for whose sake so many changes have been made in the pronunciation of words - assimilation for the sake of "EUPHONY". "Euphony" is a lovely word to hear and say and read. The last word in the list - "EUREKA!" - Is always spoken and written with an exclamation point. It was spoken by Archimedes when he discovered a method of determining the purity of the gold in a king’s crown. I hope that when you will have finished this book you will have found a method to an excellent vocabulary and you will exclaim, "EUREKA!"




(E?)(L?) https://www.etymonline.com/word/eu-

"eu-" - word-forming element, in modern use meaning "good", "well", from Greek "eus" = "good", "eu" = "well" (adv.), also "luckily", "happily" (opposed to kakos), as a noun, "the right", "the good cause", from PIE "*esu-", "*su-" = "good" (source also of Sanskrit "su-" = "good", Avestan "hu-" = "good"), originally a suffixed form of root "*es-" = "to be". In compounds the Greek word had more a sense of "greatness", "abundance", "prosperity", and was opposed to "dys-".
