Canterbury Prologue Vocabulary 10A

Hi grade 10 ladies,

 

Here’s the vocabulary I told you about.

 

As you must remember, we will use the blog as we did with vocabulary last year.

 

For the new ones, I will explain. You will need to look up the word that has been assigned to you.

 

You may use www.thefreedictionary.com which is a reliable source.

 

Once you, find the definition, you must copy and paste it as in the example below.

 

Word: (part of speech) definition.

 

Once you comment, you will receive feedback on the definition provided either if it is right or wrong. Be patient. Your words and definition won’t appear until they are moderated, and it is not instantaneous. Some feedback will take longer than others

 

These are the words and the person responsible for each. Next to each word there is the line where the word is used. Analyze the context before you choose the corresponding definition. There may be more than one definition, but you must select the one that corresponds, so YOU CAN’T USE THE FIRST DEFINITION THAT YOU FIND.
