Q: Why do flammability and inflammability mean the same thing?
A: It is because English derives from Latin. The prefix "in-" in Latin means "to cause to." The word "flammare" means "to catch fire." Combining the two creates the Latin verb "inflammare" (to cause to catch fire).

Though, no one uses "inflammable" much anymore. They usually just say "flammable."

Hope this helps!
