REA's Interactive Flashcard books represent a novel approach which combines the merits of flash cards with the ease of using a book. One side of each page includes questions to be answered, with space for writing in one's answers — a feature not usually found on flash cards. The flip side of the same page contains the correct answers, much as flash cards do. English Vocabulary (Set #1) is fully indexed making it easy to locate topics for study. Thanks to the book form, there is no need to look for and fish out appropriate questions from a box and put them back in the proper order, and there is no need to carry around a box of 1,000 flash cards. The book is easier to take along and carry.

What are “Compound Words”? A compound word consists of two or more base words. Meaning of Compound word is often different from the separate base words. Compound Words and Parts of Speech Compound words are mostly nouns, adjectives, and verbs. Kinds of Compound Words Compound words are of three types: (A). Closed Compound Words: Words are joined together. There is no space or hyphen between the words. Examples: firefly / softball / redhead / keyboard / makeup / notebook (B). Hyphenated Compound Words: Words are joined together by a hyphen. Examples: daughter-in-law / over-the-counter / six-year-old (C). Open Compound Words: Words are not joined together. Words are open or separate. In other words, there is a space between the words. Examples: post office / real estate / full moon / half sister Some general rules regarding use of hyphens:- Compound Adjectives are often hyphenated. If compound adjective precedes a noun, they are hyphenated Examples: low-paying job [low- paying is a compound adjective; job is a noun] easy-going celebrity [easy-going is a compound adjective; celebrity is a noun] Adverbs that end in –ly and compounded with another modifier are generally not hyphenated: Examples: deeply held beliefs genetically modified foods highly placed sources quietly organized meeting ALSO NOTE: 1. Some compound words may have more than one form but these forms may belong to different parts of speech. Examples: bread and butter [open form] [noun] bread-and-butter [closed form] [adjective] charge sheet [open form][noun] chargesheet [closed form] [verb] fast track [open form] [noun] fast-track [hyphenated form] [adjective, verb] first degree [open form] [noun] first-degree [hyphenated form] [adjective] full time [open form] [noun] full-time [hyphenated form] [adjective, adverb] gift wrap [open form] [noun] gift-wrap [hyphenated form] [verb] hard core [open form] [noun] hard-core [hyphenated form] [adjective] hard line [open form] [noun] hard-line [hyphenated form] [adjective] road test [open form] [noun] road-test [hyphenated form] [verb] second hand [open form] [noun] second-home [hyphenated form] [adjective] 2. Some compound words which are hyphenated in American English are not hyphenated in British English. Example: cash-back [American English]; cashback [British English] 3. Compound words are mainly formed in the following ways: (a). adjective + adjective [example: bittersweet] (b). adjective + noun [example: blackboard] (c). adjective + verb [example: broadcast] (d). adjective + past participle [example: cold-blooded] (e). adjective + present participle [example: free-standing] (f). adverb (or preposition) + adjective [example: ingrown] (g). adverb (or preposition) + noun [example: afterlife] (h). adverb (or preposition) + verb [example: cutback] (i). adverb + past participle [example: brightly lit] (j). adverb + present participle [example: long-lasting] (k). noun + adjective [example: blood red] (l). noun + adverb (or preposition) [example: hanger-on] (m). noun + noun [example: airman] (n). noun + verb [example: air-condition] (o). noun + past participle [example: sun-dried] (p). verb + adverb (or preposition) [example: breakdown] (q). verb + noun [example: bathroom] (r). gerund + noun [example: bleaching powder] (s). noun + gerund [example: air-conditioning] Detailed list of Compound words in Alphabetical Order.

Text extracted from opening pages of book: HARTRAMPF'S Vocabulary-Builder REVISED AND ENLARGED EDITION By GUSTAVUS A. HARTRAMPF With Special Introduction and Vocabulary Tests by ROSS McLAURY TAYLOR, PhJD. Grosset & Dunlap Publishers NEW YORK HOW THIS VOCABULARY-BUILDER WILL WORK FOR YOU THE FAMOUS English dictionary-maker, Dr. Samuel Johnson, was once taken to task by a user of his great book for the omission of several words which she deemed important. I am really very much surprised, Doctor Johnson, she said. Whatever made you omit those important words? Ignorance, Madam, sheer ignorance, was the reply of the learned doctor. Nowadays, with our tremendously improved facilities for self - education, this disarming reply would not suffice. We have at our disposal thousands upon thousands of reference tools which even the leading scholars of Dr. Johnson's day lacked. And one of the simplest and most effective ways for you to guarantee that you will have the right word at your fingertips at the right time is to make a daily practice of using Hartrampfs VOCABULARY-BUILDER. You will find the method of using this book simplicity itself. Let us assume that you are a motion-picture critic faced with the need for describing the newest and brightest performance of Hollywood's leading comedienne. You toy with such adjectives as gay, laughable, entertaining and clever, but all of them lack freshness and vigor. None of them has the punch that the actress' own performance had. So you turn to Hartrampf s VOCABULARY-BUILDER and look in the index at the back of the book where you will find the following entry: entertain 99A, 48A, 114, 113 Turn to section 99A, which can easily be found from the numbersat the top of every page, and there you will find dozens upon dozens of verbs, adjectives and nouns conveying every conceivable shade of meaning of the words entertain, enter taining, and entertainment* Here, to describe your comedienne's performance, you will find blithe, engaging, vivacious, droll, gladsome, joyous and many others. The picture itself may have elated, beguiled, or captivated you. And the sum total of your reaction to the film was a mood of enchantment, fascination, or even; enthr ailment. And all this, mind you, from looking in only one place, There is no need to search through hundreds of pages of a dictionary or similar reference book. Here in one place are all the synonyms and associative words you are ever likely to need. Should you find even these dozens of choices insufficient, you may wish to look up the other sections referred to in the index under entertain sections 48A, 1 14, 6114974 and 113* In almost every instance, however, you will find more variations than you can possibly use in the very first section you turn to. In brief, the best and simplest way to use Hartranipf's VOCABULARY BUILDER is this: 1. Find in the index at the back of the book the word for which you want a substitute. 2. Note the section number following the word. 3. Turn back to this section in the front part of the book. There you will find the right word to express your thought Here, then, is your new VOCABULARY-BUILDER. Use it daily and you will find, almost before you know it, that you have gained real mastery over words* VOCABULARY: YOUR KEY TO SUCCESS By ROSS McLAURY TAYLOR, Ph. D. Professor of English, University of Wichita Author of Brazos, The Saddle and the Plow, etc. IF YOUHAVE EVER FELT the paralyzing. and strangling helplessness of hunting for the right word when you need it the most, then you know the real value of a rich vocabulary. There is no man on earth so alone as the one who is addressing a group of associates and, at the moment of putting across an idea which may make the future for him, finds himself struggling hopelessly for the right word to convey that idea. He is alone then; there is no one who can help him, no matter how much we may wish to. He is alone with a mind that is struggling valiantly to broadcast the right w

Etymology is the study of word origins and development. It provides one of the easiest and most effective ways to build vocabulary, because knowledge of some common roots and prefixes makes possible the figuring out of new word meanings. English is compounded of several languages, primarily Anglo-Saxon (Germanic) and Latin. Their Latin influence persists notably in the names of English cities ending in "-caster" or "-chester," from the Latin "castra" meaning "encampment." This is the third book of a series that focuses on etymology from Latin and Greek. The texts are designed to aid in learning the definitions of specific, deconstructed words. The meanings of a series of "reusable" classical prefixes and roots are presented that facilitate the deciphering of multiple related words.
