Summary

Intended for language learning disabled college students and their tutors, the booklet examines the use of words as aids in understanding an author's meaning. Suggestions are offered to help students adopt a more comfortable and effective reading style. The first section examines ways to decipher authors' context cues for information. Eight categories into which most text-related cues fall are listed. Word structure is analyzed in terms of sound, syllables, accent, and spelling patterns. Word meaning is considered through the impact of plurals, possessives, and affixes (prefixes and suffixes). Examples are provided throughout, including a list of common roots and their meanings.
