Because it sure seems that way. Otherwise, why in the world would someone have created homonyms? You know homonyms. Homophones are words that sound the same—hence the use of the suffix “phone,” which might make you think of a telephone. Homographs are words that are spelled the same but have different meanings, and unfortunately I don’t have anything clever to say about “graph” to make the word clearer. Unfortunately for those who are trying to master English, homonyms aren’t going anywhere, so you have to be aware of them to make sure that you’re actually saying—and writing—what you mean. Compliment/complement The first one is a flattering remark you might give to a student, friend, or loved one. Sight/site/cite Here’s one that all serious students need to remember. Do/due Do/doe/dough/d’oh These words, pronounced “doh,” have a wide range of meanings. Here/hear “Do you hear us? Allowed/aloud Your/you’re/yore

Irish Saints There are hundreds of Irish saints. Here they are by name alphabetically, or by feast day. Many of these saints were canonized in the early middle ages, and not much is known about them except for their names and possibly a feast day. A B C D E F G H-I J-K L M N O-P R S T-U If you haven't done so already, non-Irish speakers please see the the pronunciation guide. * names in italics represents names that have no etymological connection to the Irish name, but were used as English "translations" based upon the fact that they have similar sounds or meanings. 7 Word Formation Games Fun classroom activities for prefixes and suffixes, especially useful for FCE, CAE and other exam classes. Word formation is the addition of affixes like -ly and semi- to make longer words and different kinds of speech. Although it is often included in EFL exams and higher-level textbooks, it still probably gets just a few percent of the attention of lists of similar vocabulary, let alone tenses. Perhaps one reason for that is the lack of fun things you can do with it, something that this article seeks to start redressing. Word formation brainstorming races Give students a couple of minutes to brainstorm words with a single affix, e.g. il- or –ity. There are also ways of making this more competitive, e.g. as Board Race or with different groups brainstorming different things and correcting each other (losing points if their corrections didn’t turn out to be correct). Word formation list dictation This is kind of the opposite of the game above. Word formation snap/pelmanism

descriptive words chart Phonetics: Beats and Rhythm –[Multimedia-English] One of the things that makes English difficult to understand for foreign students is its particular rhythm. Many languages are syllabic, that means that every syllable takes the same amount of time to pronounce. In some languages stressed syllables take longer than unstressed syllables, but still, the pronunciation unit is the syllable. English is different, we don't care about syllables, we don't even care about words, it's all about beats (sound units). Every beat takes the same amount of time to pronounce. A beat may have one syllable, ten syllables, one word or five words, but it still takes the same amount of time (more or less). But not all words are affected in the same way. 1- Content words the words with meaning (nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs) 2- Grammatical words words with no meaning, but they build the grammatical structure of the sentence (prepositions, articles, verb particles, pronouns, etc.) Here's an example: Hi, What were you doing when I rang an hour ago?

Linking Words — A complete List of English Connecting Words Linking & Connecting Words It is essential to understand how Linking Words, as a part of speech, can be used to combine ideas in writing - and thus ensure that ideas within sentences and paragraphs are elegantly connected - for the benefit of the reader. This will help to improve your writing (e.g. essay, comment, summary (scientific) review, (research) paper, letter, abstract, report, thesis, etc.). It is also fundamental to be aware of the sometimes subtle meaning of these "small" words within the English language. "Linking Words" is used as a term to denote a class of English words which are employed to link or connect parts of speech or even whole sentences. Conjunctions and Transition Words Connecting Words Relations Between Words A concept is an idea - and what is an idea? So, a concept can be expressed as something between a single word, and an elaborate and in extenso described philosophy. Complete List of Linking & Connecting Words Download
Tasks for Building Vocabulary - ELT Connect Hands up who has stayed up all hours of the night, pacing the room, cramming for an exam the following morning to regurgitate all that had been ‘learned’ the night before! Long-winded quotes, citations, names and dates, formulas that you didn’t know what to do with, but had a clear visual of what it should look like? We’ve all been there! I’d like to say we have all moved on from ‘learn the list of regular verbs on page 54 and you’ll be tested tomorrow’ and as teachers, I think we have, but how do we know how our students learn when they are left to their own devices? Do they repeat x 5 times a list of ‘get’ phrasal verbs they found on Google, in the hope the ‘put’ list from last week has cemented itself to their long-term memories and needs never to be touched again? Ebbinghaus discovered an accelerated learning technique which he called ‘Spaced Repetition’ whereby a learner’s exposure to material repeatedly at increased intervals would commit the material to long-term memory.
Phonetics Sounds As you know, the English alphabet is far from being a regular and consistent system of representing all the sounds in English. For instance, think of the letter group ough. How many different way can it sound like: And as you can see, "ough" can produce a myriad of sounds seemingly randomly. Unfortunately concensus is the last thing linguists have between them and consequently several systems exist. The following are some of the signs of the American phonetic system. Formally, /t/ becomes [t] after [s], and becomes [th] everywhere else. Consonants: Some important points: V+ denoted "voiced", and V- is "voiceless". Vowels: Even though they look like English, don't be tempted to pronounce the symbols as if they were English letters. When you say a vowel, you unconsciously change your tongue and lip into an unique configuration characterized by three attributes: Unrounded vs rounded.
