Vocabulary books by Sabine

Post by sabine on Mon Jun 11, 2012 7:37 pm

Hi mates! In this post I want to share all vocabulary books I have. FOR TODAY, I selected two superb books:

1-The 4000 Words Essential for Educated Vocabulary



http://www.scribd.com/doc/23261899/Vocabulary-4000-Words

About This Book
English offers perhaps the richest vocabulary of all languages, inpart because its words are culled from so many languages. It is ashame that we do not tap this rich source more often in our dailyconversation to express ourselves more clearly and precisely.There are of course thesauruses but they mainly list commonwords. Other vocabulary books list difficult, esoteric words that wequickly forget or feel self-conscious using. However, there is abounty of choice words between the common and the esoteric thatoften seem be just on the tip of our tongue. Vocabulary 4000 bringsthese words to the fore.Whenever possible, one-word definitions are used. Althoughthis makes a definition less precise, it also makes it easier toremember. Many common words appear in the list of words, butwith their less common meanings. For example, the commonmeaning of
champion
is “winner.” A less common meaning for champion is to support or fight for someone else. (Think of thephrase “to champion a cause.”) This is the meaning that would beused in the list.As you read through the list of words, mark any that you do notknow with a check mark. Then when you read through the list again,mark any that you do not remember with two checks. Continue inthis manner until you have learned the words.There are four types of quizzes interspersed in the word list:Matching, Antonyms, Analogies, and Sentence Completions. TheMatching quizzes, review words that were just introduced. All theother quizzes contain words from any part of the list
