Do you know how words are made?W ords are not made by linguists. Words were made by people. The Logophilia Wordsmithery programme helps students
understand the process of word formation in English. These students gain a high degree of ‘dictionary independence’
and get into the habit of making words, or “Wordsmithery”.
Logophilia Wordsmithery is an Etymology-based English Vocabulary Workshop. Students are trained in the processes of word-formation in English. Word affixes are powerful carriers of words: affixes are often involved in the formation of several thousand words.
Once a student learns an affix:
- a gateway opens up to all words that are derived from them;
- he gets a rich understanding the part-of-speech and function of the word
- an intuitive word-deciphering ability develops
