All (Pan) of these words come from the root “pan”, which means “all:.
· Panegyric (N): Formal praise.
Synonyms: accolade, acclamation, eulogy, encomium, commmendation.laudation, plaudit, tribute, homage etc.
Pan + “aguris” (assembly or marketplace). The word comes from the idea of a speech at a public assembly.
· Pandemonium (N): Wild tumult, a very noisy place, a place of utter confusion and uproar.
Pandemonium originally meant home of all demons. This word comes from an epical poem by John Milton in which the capital of hell is named as pandemonium.
Synonyms: Tumult, confusion, uproar, bedalm, hubbub, hullabaloo.
Thus the word can be broken as.
Pan + daimon (Lesser god, demon).
· Panacea (N): Cure-all; remedy for diseases.
Synonyms: elixir, Nostrum.
Pan + akos (Remedy)
· Panoramic (Adj): Denoting an unobstructed and comprehensive view.
Pan +horama (sight) (Horan means to “see”)
Synonyms: Vista, view, spectacle.
I would like to introduce another word very much related to the aforementioned word.
Diorama (N): Life size; three-dimensional scene from nature or history.
Dia means “through” and “horama” means, “sight”.
Cognates of Dia :
Diameter,Diagonal,Diatribe.
· Pantheon (N);
A temple for all the gods where the images or memorials of all gods are collected.
Pan + theos (god)
· Pantomime (N): Acting without dialogue.
Panto means “all” “mimos” means, “mime”.
· Pandemic (Adj): Widespread; affecting the majority of people.
Pan + demos (People)

Can you people suggest some more cognates for this root.

Such panic need not be pandemic over Pangaea - could as well be a flash in the pan.
