homo-, hom-, hum-
(Latin: human beings, mankind; literally, "man, men"; however, it now also includes, "woman, women" or all of humanity)
This Latin homo- is related to humus, "earth" or "born" and so it is said to mean "earthly being" or "born of the earth" and it refers to all of humanity. Don't confuse this Latin homo- with the Greek homo- that means "same" or "equal".
