Description: In this course, students study the component parts of English words and the way that speakers and writers create and change words and word meaning. Students consider why and when words are borrowed from other languages, such as German, Latin, French, Spanish, Greek, and Arabic. This course provides students with tools they can use to improve their vocabulary and reading comprehension throughout their lives. It is particularly valuable for students who plan to pursue careers in medicine, law, education, psychology, philosophy, culinary arts, and the humanities, and for all students who want to improve their language skills.
