REPHRASING
"He's a
walking dictionary
"

walking
is associated with
legs
and
people
Dictionary
is a book that provides meaning of most words in a certain language
Example
The term walking dictionary suggests that he is a person who knows the meaning of a lot more words than an average person.
1. Tests understanding of words/phrases/expressions used in the passage
2. Require you to look at word associations
3. Require you to look at slight differences in meaning (nuances)
LANGUAGE USE
" Seeing the eight A1s on his report card, John
floated
out of the school hall"
What is the author suggesting with the use of the word "floated"

1. understanding of the expression
Wrong eg: It suggests that he was happy
Better eg: It suggests that John felt so happy that he drifted out of the school hall
" Joshua drifted from one job to another"
What is the autor suggesting with the use of the word "drifted"?

2. word association
Drift-> floating, driven by the waves or current of the wind-> moved
Drift->float wherever the waves bring it->no clear direction

He is suggesting that John moved aimlessly from one job to another.
" Get back here, you imbecile!" Glen bellowed.
Why did the author use the word "bellowed" instead of "shouted"

3. Slight difference in meaning
Both words tell us that Glen spoke in a loud voice. BUT bellowed suggests that he said it in a deep voice too.

A: It was to show that Glen spoke in a voice that was loud and deep.
A cemetery (That is where you find graves)
Someone she cared for had died (If you see someone crying near a grave, you would guess this was the case)
unravel the meaning of the word based on the passage

3 ways to unravel the meaning of words
VOCABULARY
" The hero died a beautiful death"

1. Use contextual clues
Beautiful here means: inspiring, holy

IT DOES NOT MEAN: attractive, splendid
" Sunblock"

2. Analyze compound words
Sunblock= sun+block

Therefore it means a barrier to the sun
" The animal snapped ferociously"

3. Take note of suffix and prefix
Acceptable: Fiercely, in a fierce manner
Unacceptable: Fierce
