Description:

Building an Active Vocabulary helps students develop their reading and writing vocabularies by showing new words in memorable contexts. Exercises ask students to use these new words in their writing and speaking. The text shows how to figure out the meaning of new words from contexts; how to use word parts; how to use a dictionary and a thesaurus efficiently and profitably; and how to improve writing through expanded vocabulary. The exercises in Building an Active Vocabulary are taken from college-level texts as well as real-world sources such as magazines and newspapers.
