This category is an online dictionary and thesaurus created by my English students.
For information about creating and editing entries see the help page for this category.
This is an ongoing project that is meant to encourage word study and vocabulary development, as well as the development of online collaboration skills.
Content of Each Entry
Ideally, each word page should include the following elements:
- Related Words
- Easily Confused Words
- Sample Sentences
- Examples from Literature
For an example, see gauche.
Additional information can be included as appropriate. This could include spelling variations among English speaking countries (U.S. organize vs. U.K. organise, for example), slang meanings, and alternate pronunciations.
Students are welcome to add multiple pronunciation files. They are also welcome to add pronunciation files for sample sentences.
This project is also meant to encourage online collaboration across time and space. Students are encouraged to use the discussion page for each entry before making major changes.
