A Guide to Learning Word Patterns
Learning word patterns is an important part of vocabulary development. By understanding how particular words are used, you’ll be able to remember them more easily and use them in your writing. Here are some tips for learning word patterns:
1. Study the word in context. The more you know about the word and the context in which it is used, the easier it will be to learn its pattern.
2. Look for regularities. Many word patterns exist because certain words are used in a consistent way. For example, the word “of” is often used before common nouns to indicate relationship or ownership.
3. Practice, practice, practice. The more you use the patterns you’ve learned, the better they’ll become. And the better they get, the easier it will be to use them in your writing.
