Meaning and Tone.
Learning words can be hard. If you're not sure what a word means, it helps if you can at least know the information around the word. There are ways of figuring out what a new or unusual word means. One way is to use context clues.
to identify words we don’t know?
-Read the sentence the word is in
-Look at the sentences before and after it
-Read the entire paragraph it is in, if you still cannot figure it out
-use substitution of each answer choice, and read it out loud to yourself to see which word makes the most sense or sounds
