MAKE THESE WORDS AND MORE PART OF YOUR WORKING VOCABULARY: admonition — appease — arduous — auspicious — cryptic — discernible — disconcerting — exhort — imminent — luminous — manifold — myriad — obsequious — ponderous — profuse — respite — reverberation — subtlety — suffice — superfluous — supine — tacit — tentative — unkempt — wistful Reading, unlike memorizing definitions, is a natural way of acquiring vocabulary. Franz Kafka’s METAMORPHOSIS is rich in vocabulary essential to the intellectual progress of modern learners. INCREASE VOCABULARY BY READING FRANZ KAFKA’S METAMORPHOSIS introduces those words with definitions, pronunciations guides, and sample sentences. It then gives the reader the opportunity to experience those words in context. Learning is quizzed, opportunity for usage is provided, and (in an appendix) additional examples from classic literature are presented. For many words, variations (with examples) are also presented. Where appropriate, Research has long since established positive correlations between vocabulary and comprehension and between comprehension and learning. Equally well-established is the correlation between reading and vocabulary development. Classic literature is rich in vocabulary—not only for its creative use of language but for its demonstrative usage of words. Put another way, in the classic literature, words “come alive!” The VOCABULARY FROM THE CLASSICS SERIES combines the natural accumulation of vocabulary skills through involvement with language and specific language instruction. The selections also provide opportunities to test progress in recognition and to practice usage of vocabulary words. MAKE THESE WORDS AND MORE PART OF YOUR WORKING VOCABULARY: admonition appease - arduous - auspicious - cryptic - discernible - disconcerting - exhort - imminent - luminous - manifold - myriad - obsequious - ponderous - profuse - respite - reverberation - subtlety - suffice - superfluous - supine - tacit - tentative - unkempt - wistful SIXTY-SEVEN FEATURED WORDS! The text of the METAMORPHOSIS is a new translation. Every effort has been made to remain true to the author’s intent. Only when this standard could be met have specific words been chosen for vocabulary study. All but a limited few of the words for study were selected from the text after the translation was complete.
