December 6, 2010 Reading: Unfamiliar Words Short Stories: “The Tell-Tale Heart”
Dealing with Unfamiliar Words All readers come across unfamiliar words when they read On first reading, if you understand the “gist” of what is being said, then try to guess the meaning of unfamiliar words from the context (the words around them). On second reading, highlight important points, make notes, and look up unfamiliar words
Unfamiliar Words - Examples As we passed the rotting garbage, we tried covering our noses to keep out the vilestench. Vile (adj.) = terrible, really bad  (evil) Stench (n.)= bad smell When his father asked, “And where do you think you’re going?” the teenager looked back at him sullenly. Sullen (adj.)= resentful, unsociable, sulky Sullenly (adv.)
Unfamiliar Words (Cont’d.) You can also figure out meaning by looking “inside” the word Look for familiar prefixes, suffixes, and roots Prefix:  a word part (affix) added to the beginning of a root word to create a new meaning Suffix: an affix added to the end of a root word to create a new meaning Root: the basic form of the word
Unfamiliar Words - Example indeterminate (adj.) in = prefix that makes the root negative determine = root that means “to find facts about something” So, “indeterminate” probably means  “impossible to know or find out” The store is closed for an indeterminate period. Haitians have an indeterminate future.
Unfamiliar Words - Example Naysayer (n.) nay = prefix, negative, usually means “no” Say = root, means to speak something er= suffix, shows someone who does something So, a “naysayer” is a person who . . .  . . . says no to something; in other words, he or she speaks against something
Handout, Exercise 8.1 Use context and word form to help figure out the  meaning of the underlined word. It was serendipity (n.) that I came across that article.  I wasn’t even thinking of my research project when I found it, but it has just what I need.   = lucky, happy coindence
Answers, Exercise 8.1 2. in conflict 3. on-time 4. awkward, difficult 5. generosity, unselfishness 6. shortened 7. hungry, starving 8. integrated, blended, merged 9. skilled movement 10. strengthen
Handout, Exercise 8.2  Use context and word form to help figure out the  meaning of the underlined word. She thought that adults would behave better, but this class was as obstreperous as a bunch of preschoolers. well-motivated and on-task noisy and difficult to control bored and sleepy
Answers, Exercise 8.2  2. c) without energy or enthusiasm 3.  a) everywhere 4.  b) abandoned, not cared for 5.  c) convincing 6.  a) depressed 7. a) spit 8. c) talkative 9.  a) too ready to believe things 10. b) not regular, not dependable 11. c) person who started something 12. b) loud

  • 1. December 6, 2010 Reading: Unfamiliar Words Short Stories: “The Tell-Tale Heart”
  • 2. Dealing with Unfamiliar Words All readers come across unfamiliar words when they read On first reading, if you understand the “gist” of what is being said, then try to guess the meaning of unfamiliar words from the context (the words around them). On second reading, highlight important points, make notes, and look up unfamiliar words
  • 3. Unfamiliar Words - Examples As we passed the rotting garbage, we tried covering our noses to keep out the vilestench. Vile (adj.) = terrible, really bad (evil) Stench (n.)= bad smell When his father asked, “And where do you think you’re going?” the teenager looked back at him sullenly. Sullen (adj.)= resentful, unsociable, sulky Sullenly (adv.)
  • 4. Unfamiliar Words (Cont’d.) You can also figure out meaning by looking “inside” the word Look for familiar prefixes, suffixes, and roots Prefix: a word part (affix) added to the beginning of a root word to create a new meaning Suffix: an affix added to the end of a root word to create a new meaning Root: the basic form of the word
  • 5. Unfamiliar Words - Example indeterminate (adj.) in = prefix that makes the root negative determine = root that means “to find facts about something” So, “indeterminate” probably means “impossible to know or find out” The store is closed for an indeterminate period.
