For more than forty years, English Words from Latin and Greek Elements, by Donald M. Ayers, has shown thousands of students the way to a broader vocabulary by teaching them to recognize the classical roots found in many English words. When the second edition of that text appeared in 1986, it was joined by a workbook that has proven exceptionally popular in reinforcing those vocabulary skills. Each lesson in the Workbook complements the text with a variety of exercises: short-answer, matching, multiple choice, word analysis, fill-in-the-blank, and true-false. The Workbook has now been revised to make it more relevant and useful. It features a new dictionary exercise and word analysis exercises, the replacement of true-false exercises that have caused the most difficulty for students, and the elimination of archaic words and other items that have become dated. The authors have also improved the clarity of the instructions for individual exercises, in some cases adding notes or providing sample answers. As part of the revised front matter, there is a new introduction written just for students to help them get the most out of the workbook. English Words and the Workbook have met with unqualified success in English and Classics courses at both the advanced secondary and college levels. This revision of the Workbook helps to ensure the continuing relevance of the roots approach to vocabulary building for tomorrowÕs students.

Fascination with words-their meanings, origins, pronunciation, usages-is something most of us experience at some point. This book aims both to fuel and to satisfy that fascination. The book is based on a course that each of the authors helped to develop at Stanford University over the past twenty years. The aim of the course was to help students master English vocabulary and to provide the fundamentals for pursuing an interest in English words. To this end, the book offers a detailed but introductory survey of the developments that have given English a uniquely rich vocabulary, taking into account both the changing structure of the language and the historical events that shaped the language as a whole. Anyone who believes that changes in the language are robbing it of its elegance or expressive power will see this view challenged by the developments described here. At the core of the book are a set of several hundred vocabulary elements that English borrowed, directly or indirectly, over the past fifteen hundred years, from Latin and Greek.; These elements, introduced gradually chapter by chapter, provide a key to understanding the structure and meaning of much of the learned vocabulary of the language. The chapters trace the history and structure of English words from the sixth century onward, laying out the major influences that are still observable in our vocabulary today. Each chapter ends with a large number of exercises. These offer many different types of practice with the material in the text, making it possible to tailor the work to different sets of needs and interests. Upon finishing this textbook, students will be able to penetrate the structure of an enormous portion of the vocabulary of English, with or without the help of a dictionary, and to understand better how an individual word fits into the system of the language. This second edition incorporates improved and refined text as well as examples and exercises, with thorough revision of pedagogy as a result of their significant classroom-based expertise. The new edition also updates cultural references, accounts for variations in pronunciation among students, and clarifies when historical details are important or peripheral.

Wer legt fest, was ein Wort bedeutet?: Nick ist ein kluger Lausbub und hat viele Tricks auf Lager, um Lehrpersonen vom Aufgabengeben abzuhalten. Doch bei der neuen Lehrerin der fünften Klasse versagen sie. So muss Nick selber einen Vortrag darüber halten, warum das Wörterbuch wichtig ist fürs Leben. Diese Aufgabe beschäftigt ihn: Wer bestimmt denn, was ein Wort bedeuten soll? Nick kommt auf die Idee, ein eigenes Wort zu erfinden. Anstatt Kugelschreiber oder Bleistift sagt er in Zukunft nur noch "Frindel". In kürzester Zeit setzt sich das Wort im ganzen Schulhaus durch. Gerade auch, weil die Lehrerin Mrs. Granger so dagegen ist. Die ganze Geschichte kommt in der Lokalzeitung und wahrhaftig auch im Fernsehen. Immer mehr Menschen übernehmen das Wort, viel Geld lässt sich mit dessen Vermarktung verdienen. Nach zehn Jahren erhält es seinen Platz im offiziellen Wörterbuch. Da erhält Nick einen Brief von seiner ehemaligen Lehrerin, der eine grosse Überraschung beinhaltet! Eine witzige Schulgeschichte, die zum Nachdenken über die Bedeutung von Wörtern anregt und darüber, was Sprache eigentlich ist. Ab 10 Jahren, gut, Irene Beglinger-Flückiger.
