vocabularyFind Your Writing Niche: www.vocabulary.com

   A Google search for a story I was writing recently made me aware of www.vocabulary.com. The fascinating site states on its home page that it is “the quickest, most intelligent way to improve your vocabulary.”

I started with THE CHALLENGE on the menu bar, a multiple choice exercise, and couldn’t quit. The exercise includes a sentence with a word in bold type or a blank space so you can fill in the correct word. You get to choose one of four words. If your choice is the correct word, you get to go to the next word. If your choice is incorrect, you have a mini lesson about the word and its meaning. Sometimes a word is superimposed at the intersection of four pictures, and you are asked to choose the picture that represents the word. What fun!

It is especially helpful for students and teachers, but professional writers can benefit as well. Under HOW IT WORKS, you answer questions, and you receive a profile of your ability and needs. Since it is totally individualized, you learn the words you don’t know.

Check out www.vocabulary.com and have fun with it.

Now available is Women and Adversity, Saluting 23 Faithful Suffragists to commemorate the passage of the 19th Amendment giving the women the right to vote.
