You can construct, you can destruct, and/or you can tell someone else how to do it and instruct.

Beyond the definition, which is fairly obvious in context, I prefer the ORIGIN.

instruct
Word History

*
Date of Origin 15th c.
The -struct of instruct occurs also in construction, destruction, structure, etc. It comes from the past participle of Latin struere ‘build’. In the case of instruct, combination with the prefix in- produced instruere ‘build, prepare, equip, teach’, whose past participle stem instruct- formed the basis of the English verb.
See also construct, destroy, instrument, structure
