Building Vocabulary

Lexicon Geeks

Word Game

The goal of this word game is to help build vocabulary. Test your stored knowledge and vocabulary skills before researching words online or in the dictionary.

Directions:

1. Write a word that begins with the letter F and ends with the letter T in the Leave a Reply/Leave a Comment section below.

2. Select any two words from the list we have provided below or any two words that participants have shared in the Leave a Reply/Leave a Comment section below that you’re unfamiliar with. Google the words to learn their definitions and then write two simple sentences for each of the new words you’ve learned.

3. If you select a word that you don’t know how to pronounce, google the word. Usually, there will be a megaphone next to the word googled. Click on the megaphone to listen to the correct pronunciation of the word.

4. Pay it forward by sharing your sentences in the Leave a Reply/Leave a Comment section below (keep scrolling down).

Let’s get started. I’ll start:

• fascist

• fondant

• fluorescent

• florist

• flamboyant

• flagrant

• flabbergast

• fragrant

• fraudulent

• frequent

• fastest

• flaunt

• flirt

• figment

Remember it is okay if you do not know the definition of a word when you hear it for the first time. Also, you may not know how to pronounce it when you read it. There are over 700,000 words in the English language. It is impossible for someone to know the meaning of all of these words, and how to say them. Remember to relax while you are learning new words to make it easier to learn. Our staff of experts is here to assist you and help you learn more.

Please share your answers in the Leave a Reply/ Leave a Comment section below (keep scrolling down). A member of our teaching staff will provide helpful feedback on your syntax.
