What is Comprehension?
The action or capacity to understand something (i.e. text)
(Basic College Math, M. Michael Michaelson, 1945)
"If the known relation between the variables consists of a table of corresponding values, the graph consists only of the corresponding set of isolated points. If the variables are known to vary continuously, one often draws a curve to show the variation."
Last Serny, Flingledobe and Pribin were in the Nerd-link treppering gloopy caples and cleaming burly greps. Suddenly a ditty strezzle boofed into Flingledobe's tresk. Pribin glaped and glaped. "Oh, Flingledobe." He chifed, "That ditty strezzle is tunning in your grep!"
"Reading does not consist merely of decoding the written word or language; rather it is preceded by and intertwined with knowledge of the world"
