“F” – Vocab-ability – A More Powerful Vocabulary (This post includes all entries beginning with the letter “F”) (Revised and Updated)

in writing •  7 months ago

This revised post comprises all the “F” entries of the Vocab-ability series. It includes many English words whose etymology can be traced to Greek and Latin roots.

If you learn these roots, you can learn, understand, and use each and every English word derived from them. Vocab-ability is an easy-to-use resource guide to help you understand those roots.

In total, this Vocab-ability post features 21 entries that begin with the letter “F."

So many new words!
Now, regarding infer, how do you use it? It is a synonym of understanding.
"I infer you were angry because of that."

·

Good question, grasshopper! * And good example sentence, in which you use the word properly. Just think of "infer" as being the opposite of "imply." So, yes, we can often use it as a synonym of "understand."

By calling you "grasshopper," I imply that you are a student who still has many things to learn, but who is making continued progress.

And, you can infer the same implicit message.

A good initiative indeed..!🙌

i had few knowledge about root words but this Vocab-Ability thing is quite new to me and kinda feel interested in it...!
I bookmarked this post and will check later for all other Vocb-Ability posts for root words from other letters...

As i m not a native english speaker, I found this Vocab-Ability thing useful to gain more knowledge about english..!😇

keep it up, buddy..! great series..! 💪👌
Greetings from Tennis Girl 🎾🎾

I'm glad this helps you, and very pleased to hear that you bookmarked it.

And this series is intended to help primarily non-native English speakers. I compiled all the material in Vocab-ability when I was working as an ESL teacher, and many of my advanced-level students benefited from it. So now, I am updating it and uploading it onto Steemit for language learners like you.

Good luck in your studies, and FULL STEEM AHEAD!

thanks to u for sharing this with us here.
as i decided to post in english instead of italian here, so i need a good supply of words from my memory.. 😄
hope this will help me increse my vocabulary...!
keep this good work going..! 🤗

You'll notice that many of the words are derived from Latin, so they might be similar to Italian words.

So far, I've been quite impressed with your written English. I'm grateful that I can post in my native language, since you and so many people like you write in English, which is your second language.

I hope you find Vocab-ability to be useful. After I post the PREFIX series and the SUFFIX series, I'm going to post each Vocab-ability box in a separate, daily post. Hopefully, that will help you and others in your study / learning.

Best of luck!

Thank you. I used to be an English (ESL) teacher, and during that time I collected all these root words. Now, I'm able to post all this learning material on Steemit.

It's primarily intended for ESL students and teachers, but I also hope that many others also find it useful, educational, and interesting.

Cheers!
