Excerpt from The Century Vocabulary Builder
Aside from a brief introductory chapter, a chapter (number X) given over to a list of words, and a brief concluding chapter, the subject matter of the volume falls into three main divisions. Chapters II and III are based on the fact... that we must all use words in combination must ¿ing the words out by the handfuls, even as the accomplished pianist must strike his notes. Chapters IV and V are based on the fact that we must become thor oughly acquainted with individual words - that no one who scorns to study the separate elements of speech can command powerful and discriminating utterance. Chap ters VI, VII, VIII, and IX are based on the fact that we need synonyms as our constant lackeys - that we should be able to summon, not a word that will do, but a word that will express the idea with precision. Exercises scattered throughout the book, together with five of the six appendices, provide well-nigh inexhaustible materials for practice.
