    What do you do when you encounter a new word while you are reading a book, a magazine, or a newspaper? Do you ask someone else what it means? Do you try to figure out its meaning based on the context in which it appears? Or do you use the dictionary? Years ago, the maxim in school was, “Look it up and you’ll never forget it.” In fact, that is still true today. Using this, or any other dictionary, will help you remember the word long after you first discovered it. Why? Because once you’ve had a chance to see it in writing, along with its definition, it will stick in your mind. You will get a visual image ofthe word, so when you encounter it again, it triggers that visual memory. When you hear a new word, the dictionary is your answer, once again. You will not only understand its meaning, but you will also learn how to spell the word correctly. Most of the words in this dictionary include the derivation of the words, so that you can more fully understand the word and associated words.
