ETYMA II is an undergraduate or advanced high school textbook for English vocabulary-building. It is divided into three parts, beginning with a brief history of foreign words in English, including information on families of languages, the Indo-European relations of English, and the development of the language. This is followed by two large sections on the Latin and Greek element in English. In every section, numerous exercises help students work closely with the material. Each of the practical word-building chapters ends with a summary “what you should know” as well as adequate reviews. Complete reviews of material are included between every few chapters. Games, projects, vocabulary notes on history in words, words in contexts, odd and interesting words are included in every lesson to keep students’ interest alive, especially in the more arid chapters on the nuts and bolts of vocabulary building.
