Vocabulary is a prerequisite for learning English, in which truth self-evident, like building built without bricks. Vocabulary learning through learning English all along, is fundamental for English learning, vocabulary can be directly affects the listening, speaking, reading, writing and translating the skills enhancement. In fact, the important grammar points in English at the secondary level has been basically finished, after entering the University restricting English has improved, a major factor is that vocabulary. Accumulation of knowledge is closely linked to and raise the level of English, people with high English proficiency tend to have a larger vocabulary.
Vocabulary learning is as much as some might think, glossary of back on the line. Like to know someone learning vocabulary, to be implemented in two stages: first to know their looks, then cooked its temperament. You have to know that they are male or female, green, black and white, young and old ugly handsome, tall, short, fat and thin. After you do this, and to understand their temperament and background, associations, etc. For vocabulary learning, "known by its looks," is to remember the vocabulary of form, sound and meaning,; " Well temperament "is to understand and then register to which it belongs (formal, colloquial, slang, vulgar), professional fields (physics, astronomy, medicine, music, photography, etc), usage, collocations, etc. Certainly, as the we impossible, and also no necessary in-depth understand we see had of each personal as, for some vocabulary mixed a face son cooked can, for example noun, general situation Xia know its "looks" on enough has; and for addition some Word is to is solutions, until mastery, like verb, often only know mean is enough of, also must understand it of "temperament".
Therefore, the vocabulary first had to figure out which words "is known by its appearance", which is "well temperament". In other words, "known by its looks," refers studies used single words in width work on, that is, to dabble, mix some more familiar faces; " Well temperament "means that when you learn to use complex words in depth work, in-depth exploration of its use in order to access.
So, how do you decide which words to put on the breadth, which words have in depth work? many learners often see spelling long words she whispered, feeling bad master, but it is not. Experts found that the really difficult was not the "big", but many people think that simply could not be more simple, "little man". Think about it, this makes sense. Isn't it? a lot of "big" meaning and usage is very simple, and because of their "tall" can leave a profound impression of natural advantages, these words are very easy to blend a face familiar and often cooked mixed faces is enough. For example, enthusiasm, entertainment, telecommunications these words can be said to be "big", but a good grasp. Why? because they have the meaning and usage of a single feature, but their morphology according to pronunciation, word formation is not hard to remember. For the vocabulary of "little man", we tend to be smaller because they figure and did not pay enough attention. For example, get, make, do,go, at these words may seem simple, but according to the length of these words in the dictionary, which is not a real big guy? is not a real tough nut to? in some extent it can be said that longer words easier to grasp, less is more difficult. Many people learn words spend too much energy memorizing some long words, big words, ignoring the more uncompromising, even long term, big show as the capital, it's no wonder they write a paper style blunder, the talks do not like to communicate with others, like reading a scientific paper.
Expert in vocabulary vocabulary according to the frequency of the use of the word is divided into two types: low-frequency words (low-frequency words) and the high frequency words (high-frequency words) learner should focus on mastering the Basic, everyday life in the most frequently used words, and on this basis can be extended according to the individual interests and abilities. At present, many relying on corpus compilation of dictionaries provide frequency information, inform users how the frequency of use of a Word, use the area, and so on. In this way, learners can be aware and know for themselves which words are key, and which are not. For example, the Longman Dictionary of contemporary English (British English? English solution) (hereinafter referred to as the Brown when) is one of the first dictionaries for learners of word frequency tagging. Flipping through the Brown when you will find the odd page footer line: oral-and written-1000 of the most commonly used Word 2000 words, 3000 words, it provides the following information: next to this symbol Word is spoken or written English 1000, 2000 or 3000 words most commonly used in. With these marks, the learner will not mess with big words in daily communication, talk like a book, nor in writing regardless of the style used.
It can be said that master 3000 vocabulary can finish most communication tasks, which is marked by the lang when range of high frequency words. In practice, however, these words are the most difficult to master, they are ever-changing, usage is very flexible. While the usage of low frequency words are relatively small, relatively fixed, easy to grasp. Therefore, high frequency words must grasp, low-frequency words mixed familiar is often on the line.
From the perspective of speech, goes like this: for nouns, know the meaning on the line; the adjective, in addition to the meaning, you want to know what are the nouns they modify, or are only ill, what words can't be modified; verbs are the key must be known, Xiao Yi, and cooked it. In this way, burden reduces a lot of the vocabulary, help to enhance confidence in learning vocabulary, good steel should be used wisely, targeted, not wasting energy.
English vocabulary learning is a cumulative process, it is difficult to express. Practice has proved that the semantic context words are the most effective strategies. A Word only on the exact meaning in sentences, only you can feel its use in the sentence. So they in addition to completing the study tasks, a large number of extensive reading is helpful. Material will not be too difficult, try to choose the topic you're interested in, step by step, from easy to difficult.
