ACD Session No: 382 : Power of Words Concluded on Saturday, August 27 2016

Decades of research by the Johnson O'Connor Research Foundation, an independent, nonprofit scientific research and educational organization, confirms that income and vocabulary size are correlated. Think of every word you add to your vocabulary as being like a dollar deposited to your personal bank account. A powerful vocabulary allows you to express your thoughts clearly and precisely. Therefore the objective of this session will be to share strategies on how to increase and enhance your own vocabulary by exposure to using a variety of methods -  like power of association, meditation, narration, onomatopoeia, linking, affixing, shadowing, etymology, etiology, poly furcation, rhyming and even by singing. All strategies demonstrated will provide excitement and pleasure in developing a plethora of lexical items to your rather limited cache of lexical items.
