« communication » comes from « communicate », which comes from « common ».
Well, actually, it's more like it came from latin « commūnicātiōnem »,
which came from « commūnicāre », which came from « commūnis », but my
point is about suffix aggregation.
For « compound » and « component », however, it comes from com- (together)
and -ponere (to put).
This is actually copy-paste from several wiktionary pages (I don't know
any latin !).

assumed = ad+sūmō+ed ;
impose = in+ponere ;
problem = pro+ballo (before several mutations) ;
unless = un+less ;
glueing = glue+ing ;
together = to+gether (with various old spellings) ;
