SUMMARY

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 tomorrow's students.Dettmer, Helena is the author of 'Donald M. Ayers's English Words from Latin and Greek Elements ', published 2005 under ISBN 9780816523184 and ISBN 0816523185.
