words that begin with ex- extension

Monday, Monday... Monday again... Today, I want to talk about a nice word which has many practical meanings.

Let's look at the word

EXTENSION

This word refers to expansion, a branch of a telephone, a supplement, a group of letters indicating file types (e.g. .doc or .pdf); in Polish, as I have already said, the word has quite a few interesting meanings. What are they? Let's see:
  • zasięg, zakres
  • wzrost, rozwój
  • rozszerzenie
  • rozmiar, rozległość
  • rozciąganie, rozciągłość
  • przedłużenie, prolongata
  • numer wewnętrzny
  • dobudówka
This is how you pronounce the word extension.

The word extension is also used in many compounds:
  • extension cord/cable - przedłużacz
  • extension course - kurs dla pracujących
  • extension ladder - drabina wysuwana
  • extension of time - przedłużenie terminu
A few examples from the Internet:
