- ALL ABOUT WORDS : AN ADULT APPROACH TO VOCABULARY BUILDING - From Anglo-Saxon origins to Space Age lingo- an easy, enjoyable way to gain real vocabulary power, a must for those who take word exams.
DetailsThis book provides an attractive way to build up the vocabulary power via history, folklore, and anecdote, as they tell all about words – how they begun, how they developed, and exactly what they mean. Here's an unbelievable way to learn a word without doing much effort - with games, puzzles, exercises, and a whole battery of challenging tests.The authors of this book address themselves partly to people who are fascinated by such delving into the ancestry of words. But they also address themselves to those who wish to enlarge their vocabularies, and more narrowly, to those who face examinations that include vocabulary questions.TABLES OF CONTENT:A word to our ReadersA Funny Thing Happened on the Way Through the DictionaryOne Day with a NewspaperA week with a BookGetting at the RootsSyllables That Starts the word GoingTake a numberEnd Pieces that Shape the WordWords all about and around usEnglish : A Distillation of Many LanguagesA Miscellany of WordsFrom Native and Kindred RootsMuch Latin, Less GreekThe Old Myths are Still AlivePersons, Places, and BooksDiscovering the Old, Inventing the NewOur Own Battery of TestsAnswersIndexIndex of Writers QuotedABOUT THE AUTHORS:Maxwell Nurnberg is Adjunct Associate Professor of English at New York University and Chairman of the English Department at Abraham Lincoln High School in Brooklyn.
