Details: Nothing thrusts your personality forward better than an expansive vocabulary—coupled with wit, an articulate delivery, cogent arguments, and an interest in & knowledge of the world. We can’t address the latter—but WOMMACK'S VOCABULARY+ BUFFET puts you easily on the road to a deep and dynamic vocabulary. Extremely helpful to creative writers too.
Our approach is vastly different from other tomes:
First—Portability. We’re an e-book. Easily carried anywhere, consulted, studied.
Second—Pronunciation. Gone are the confusing accent marks & non-phonetic instructions. Our pronunciation guide is simple & phonetic.
Third—Illustrative sentences. We load you up with them—4 to 10 per word. Real help beyond definitions. Showing you how the various word meanings are correctly incorporated in sentences. Definitions alone won’t fix your mind. Sentence usage will. No other vocabulary reference comes close to us—over 6,000 sentences for over 1,500 words.
Fourth—Games. We suggest a wealth of two-person & parlor games to reinforce your learning, allow you to practice in a competitive manner.
Plus—we include a body of extras to flavor your conversation:
•Quotations from Shakespeare’s plays, famous poems, Dr. Seuss, Ben Franklin, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Will Rogers, the Talmud, Chinese proverbs, & nursery rhymes.
•Confusing words, prefixes & suffixes, & frequently misspelled words.
