Title: Improving your vocabulary


1
Improving your vocabulary
  • The following slides slowly show you derivatives
    of a common base word. These words are found in
    the Academic Word List a list of the most
    common words needed to function well in an
    academic setting.
  • At the top of the presentation is a comment on
    how the word is formed (the meanings of the
    roots, etc)
  • In the middle of the presentation are various
    derivational changes. A noun will change its form
    to become an adjective etc. As you click to
    reveal more different forms, constantly ask
    yourself the question are these forms in my
    active repertoire ?
  • Usually at the end of the presentation there is
    an arrow, and then a word which adopts a similar
    root, but is a completely different word with a
    different meaning. So instead of going DEEP
    (vertically) as you did with the derivatives -
    inside the way a word can change, I invite you to
    go FAR (horizontally) across many new, related
    words.
  • The idea here is that you let your mind
    receptively input the words you see. Dont work
    too hard. Just let the words enter your mind.
    Listening to music while watching this
    presentation may help.
