- demonstrates how Etymology Education can significantly enhance English awareness in Spelling, Vocabulary & Pronunciation
- clarifies that English Vocabulary is not just required for reading English Literature, but is essential for understanding all subjects (the Natural Sciences, the Social Sciences, et cetera)
- powerfully explains how memorising is a very primitive practice, and is contradictory to the process of understanding
- reveals how small the average student vocabulary size is, and how Vocabulary acquisition can be sophisticated.
