Hi folks, I like to extend my vocabulary bank for writing. I know well that by memorizing dictionaries or by vocabulary games, you won't learn how to use the word in you own writing. I use very little of the vocabulary I know... I am wondering if there is a way to activate them. So that I know when and where the word is used and in what kind of prose. I've heard one method, that is to read a fine piece of prose and then without looking at it, try to write what you remember on a paper and them compare them to see what especial words the prose has used that you have not. Do you know any other method? Thank you.
