What do you do to enhance your vocabulary?I always used to think about what best can be done to enhance one's vocabulary. Most people gave suggestions like reading English newspapers like The Hindu, The Indian express, the Economic times etc. But it appeared to be a very time consuming process and sometimes boring also. It was then that one of my of my friends suggested "Word Power Made Easy" by Norman Lewis and I really liked the idea. This book is effective and wonderful to read. It has changed my whole perception about vocabulary enhancement and also made me interested in the etymology of the words.
Now whenever I study about the origin of any words, the stories behind these words always fascinate me. In the past there were so many words which I recognized and had idea about them but had no idea about their origin. But now I know all the story behind them.
One such simple word is the Greek word 'astron' which means star and there are so many words formed by this word like astrology- study of star (logy- study of eg- biology, psychology e.t.c),
disaster- when stars are against you, as in earlier days it was believed that human destiny is ruled by star and when they are against us it causes calamity or any misfortune, asterisk- star like shape, astrophysics- branch of physics which deals with heavenly bodies etc.
