"Cure For The Obscure" by Liz Kimmel

The minute a baby is born he or she begins to learn . . . Who are my parents? How do I get their attention? How do I make them understand me? Learning is a lifelong process and it can be FUN. You can learn through puzzles and word searches and creative expression. You can learn by listening and then by practicing. You can learn about any subject you wish, but this particular workbook is intended to help you to understand some interesting things about the English language. Just what is the difference between a palindrome and an anagram? Who knew that there was a specific order to use when your description of a noun includes multiple adjectives? When does punctuation go inside the quotation marks, and when does it go outside? Do you have any idea what a toponym is? On page 3 you will find an exercise about “Nym-ble Speech,” which identifies some familiar and some unfamiliar “nym” words. You probably know what an acronym is, but have you ever heard of a bacronym? We talk to one another and write words on paper in some form every day. Wouldn’t it be fun if our speech could be considered “nimble?” nimble [nim-buh l] adjective, nimbler, nimblest. 1. quick and light in movement; moving with ease; agile; active; rapid: nimble feet. 2. quick to understand, think, devise, etc.: a nimble mind. 3. cleverly contrived: a story with a nimble plot.
