Owing to the emphasis in recent years on functional and communicative approaches to language learning, many other important areas of the language have been neglected. One such area is vocabulary. From my experience in teaching students from various backgrounds, I come to a conclusion that students’ foremost difficulty is on vocabulary mastery. This book is an attempt to remedy this situation not only by filling a real gap in materials available but also by attempting to show that vocabulary learning can be just as much fun and just as stimulating as other activities. The book was written in order to deal with anything related to vocabulary, and to prepare readers or students, from elementary level to intermediate level, to become intelligent acquirers of English words, be familiar with various techniques of vocabulary building, and, more important, be able to apply them in daily communication. The book is practical in a sense that it does not just provide concept, but also how to use and apply them through intensive exercises. There are fifteen topics with 113 exercises. In general, this students’ book concentrates on the following skills need for foreign language study. 1. Knowing how to use a dictionary-monolingual dictionaryeffectively and efficiently. 2. Knowing English morphemes with its various kinds. 3. Differentiating content and function words 4. Knowing and being able to apply word formation processes. 5. Understanding and analyzing word structure (immediate constituent). 6. Being familiar with words with multiple meanings and being able to pick them up in certain context 7. Knowing literal and figurative meanings 8. Introducing some very common classification of idioms, collocation and phrasal verbs accompanied with commonly used idioms and phrasal verbs. 9. Familiarizing English acronyms and abbreviations. 10.Comparing and exercising homophony, homonymy, polysemy, synonymy, antonymy, hyponymy. 11.Familiarizing some mostly appear confusable words. 12.Introducing and familiarizing most common proverbs in English and some mostly used English words. Finally, I would like to express my sincere thanks to any party to whom I am indebted. May the availability of the book contribute significantly to whom in need.
