But today's word, while it is a homograph and a homophone of the more familiar repair, is a slightly older and unrelated verb. Repair, the synonym of fix, comes via Anglo-French from the Latin reparare, a combination of the re- prefix and parare ("prepare"). Test Your Memory: What former Word of the Day refers to the study of the origin and forms of proper names?

Vocabulary Practice With Rap Your Words Vocabulary Practice With Rap Your Words Posted on Thu, Sep 15, 2011 I love being able to let popular celebrities inspire my students with a positive educational message, especially the most unlikely ones. Eminem did my work for me when he was interviewed by 60 Minutes; he talked about how he can rhyme unlikely words together and therefore has an almost obsessive need to know as many words as possible. That one snippet of his interview alone is a great inspiration as to why students should care about learning new vocabulary! I also use his interview to prime students right before I assign them to write their own vocabulary raps (or song lyrics if students would rather not rap but sing). My students team up in pairs and have to use at least 15 of the 20 vocabulary words of their current unit. The vocabulary words have to be used in context and must make sense; furthermore, the lyrics need to be clean and not cruel.
