Thanks to Mr. Suresan Melanaturu, our site can now boast of a free vocabulary builder. Mr Suresan has carefully selected a list of two thousand words, which are on the high frequency list of those which appear in all English language tests, including, GRE, TOEFL and IELTS, and has given for each word its synonym, a detailed explanation, sentences in which they are used, and their antonyms.
Welcome to the wonderful world of words! Here you find a choice list of a few thousand words. Selected for their frequent appearance in the tests of verbal ability in examinations like SAT, GRE, GMAT, etc., they can help you also to hone up your communication skills in general. Take the vocab exercises here as a game, not just for the fun a game provides, but also as a challenge a game throws at you, when you go all out to win the game.
When you know just the meaning of the word, and understand its import, it forms a part of your passive vocabulary. If you are however able to use it correctly when the context demands it, it becomes a part of active vocabulary.
Do know the meanings of as many words as you can, and master their use. Make your communication very effective, by using the right word at the right time. Give your speech or writing variety, by using different words for the same idea.
A warning, however. It would appear bookish if you used a word, just for the sake of it, just because you know it, and not for its easy understandability. There will then be a communication gap, or distortion of communication, if your reader or listener finds it uncommon and does not understand it.
In this WORLD OF WORDS that you are going to explore, you find it a thrill to learn words. Every word is followed first by its precise meaning. Then follows an analysis of the word. It makes it easy for you to know the correct shade of the meaning of the word, and precisely in which contexts and how the word is used. Then follow two sentences illustrating the use of the word. If a word has more than one meaning, all the meanings and their analyses are also given. So if you have the will, here is the best way to master the words. Come, get the thrill and excitement!
