You notice that all the derivatives above have a -ject spelling. The Romans tended to shift the vowel to a short sound when they added a prefix to the word. So iacio became conicio, coniectum. The medieval scribes wrote it conjectum and we have our word conjecture which means literally, "throw together". When we are trying to figure out something, we throw together the clues we have nad come up with a conjecture, a supposition, a guess. The root idea "throw" is so easy for children to understand, they can readily understand the derivatives we have from "Jacio, Jactum" when we explain how these "throw" words are used metaphorically for various mental actions such as "rejecting" and objecting".
