  • If you can include any information about the
    words origin or history, that would be great.

ii. Compare It
  • Write words or phrases that are similar or
    different to the meaning of the word.
  • Mostly, these will be synonyms and antonyms.
  • You should consult a thesauruseither online or a

ii. Compare It
  • Synonyms boorish, cloddish, rude, ill-mannered,
    clodhopping, clownish, coarse, loutish, lowbred,
    uncivilized, uncultured, unpolished.

ii. Compare It (continued)
  • Related Words crude, discourteous blunt,
    brusque, crusty, curt, gruff dour, surly naive,

Compare It (continued)
  • Contrasted Words bland, politic, smooth
    polished, sophisticated
  • Antonym courtly

iii. Associate It
  • What does this word make you think of?

iii. Associate It
  • Churlish makes me think about someone whom it
    can be uncomfort-able to be around. Someone once
    told me that the purpose of good manners is to
    make other people feel comfortable. If someone is
    being churlish, then it makes you feel ill at
    ease to be around them.

iii. Associate It (continued)
  • The only other word I know that sounds like
    churl is churn, which means to stir up. This
    sort of goes along with what I just said about
    churlish people making you feel uncomfortable,
    i.e. churlish people stir up the atmosphere and
    disturb peoples comfort levels.

iv. Use ItIn a Poem
  • To add a more creative dimension to this
    assignment, I would you to write a poem using
    your word. The word could be used in the title of
    the poem or in the actual poem.

iv. Use ItIn a Poem
  • Dont feel intimidated because you have to write
    a poem. If you have an idea of your own for a
    poem, use it!
  • If youre stuck for an idea, write a snapshot

Snapshot Poem
  • A snapshot taken with a camera is a quick,
    informal picture. Similarly, a snapshot poem
    really tries to create an informal picture of a
    person, a place, or an event.
  • Use images that your reader can picture in their

Snapshot Poem (continued)
  • Your poem doesnt have to rhyme, but it can.
  • Your poem can be all one stanza or several

Snapshot Poem (continued)
  • Think about which words to put together on a line
    as this will affect how your reader takes in the
    words when he or she reads it.
  • Use punctuation to help your reader understand
    the poem.

iv. Use It (continued)
  • You can use the actual part of speech in the
    vocabulary book (i.e. churlish) or a different
    form of the word, such as churl, churlishly, or

iv. Use It The Churlish Classmate
  • Angry or ill-mannered? Why
  • Is that boy talking so loudly?
  • Does he even know
  • That his volumes turned up too high?
  • He spits racist comments
  • at my best friend.

  • Is he ignorant or just insensitive?
  • He wants to borrow a pen, like he does every day.
  • Why does he never return them? Does he forget

  • Or doesnt he know youre Supposed to return
  • Things you borrow?
  • He leans on my desk and gets too close,
  • invading my personal space.

  • Does he even know?
  • Or care?

v. Quote It
  • Using an Internet search engine, find the word
    used in two different sources.
  • Quote the word in its context.

v. Quote It (continued)
  • Present the word in the sentence in which it is
    used--and maybe you will need to present more
    than one sentence for the context to make sense.

v. Quote It (continued)
  • You also have to give bibliographic credit for
    the quote, i.e. mention the author and where you
    found the quote and when you saw it.

v. Quote It (continued)
  • You could look for a quote by going to a search
    engine, such as Google or Vivisimo. Type in your
    word and view the results.

v. Quote It (continued)
  • I typed churlish at Google and received 26,300
    citations. I had to look at several before I
    found a good context to quote. Notice that I have
    included bibliographic credit.

v. Quote ItChurlish
  • Equally, Russell Crowe's own rather churlish
    response to Steve Martin's early joke about how
    the actor had been ready to hit on Ellen Burstyn,
    made up to look older than her actual age, seemed
    consistent with the Australian actor's entire

v. Quote It
  • Another way to find Internet sites that use your
    word is to type the word into the Merriam-Webster
    Online Dictionary (http//www.m-w.com/home.htm ).

  • Underneath the entry there is a place to click
    that is labeled Get the Top 10 Most Popular Sites
    for Usually there are a lot more than ten sites.
    Heres a quote I found this way.

v. Quote ItChurlish
  • "You, sir, are a rude fellow. You are churlish
    and unkind. Your disposition is grating and
    self-centered. If I am to make any progress in
    finding you a bride, you must change, Mr. Ledger,
    and quickly. (Eileen Putnam. www.eileenputman.com/
