Why Study Vocabulary?
Words are the tools we use to think and communicate. And this is an age when thinking and communicating are more important than strength and dexterity.

At a personal level, a versatile vocabulary helps a man to woo a woman. It helps us to heed the philosophers' advice to lead a "considered life."

Materially, a large vocabulary helps an artist to describe the right shade of blue. It helps a student understand the textbook, and helps a leader manipulate concepts to formulate and share a vision.

In short, an expanded vocabulary helps to:
  • Lean more easily
  • Think more clearly
  • Express more effectively
In addition, your vocabulary makes an early impression. People judge you by the words you use and understand.

It's no surprise that an extensive vocabulary is highly correlated with academic and professional success. Happily, by reading and being aware of words while reading, vocabulary is easily increased.
