intra (within)

The prefix intra means within, and is the opposite of extra which I discussed in a previous blog entry.

Intra should not be confused with inter which means between or among two or more entities. I will discuss this is a future blog article.

Here are some words using intra:

intranet (noun) a local or restricted communications networks, especially a web-based service inside an organisation.

intramural - (adjective) - situated or done within the walls of an institution.

intravenous (adjective) - within or into a vein. Some drugs are taken intravenously, meaning they are injected.

Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another. See the link below for more info.
