Hey. I have a question about the RX and its root, that being radix in latin. i was wondering if Radix was derived from some sort of greek word. I know in english, a lot of words starting with X are greek in origin, but im not sure if the ending would also hold.

also, the ending -trix, meaning she who does, ie dominatrix, "she who tames", is that greek of origin, or home grown latin?
