Firth: “Each word when used in a new context is a new word.” e.g. Please tender exact fare! Over the past ten years, the graduate education has fared well in China. But me no buts! C) David Crystal: “Vocabulary is the Everest of a language.” The English language has a huge vocabulary (about 1 million words). That’s one of the reasons why it is difficult to master. How? A) New words (neologisms): netizen; download; laptop; desktop; copy; cyberlove; photocopy; Olympiad; Judo; hockey; MIP; MVP; 110-meter huddle race; mobile phone/cell phone; smart bomb; G-man; fallout; spacewalk; boycott; green revolution; B) Core words (polysemy):
  1) Failure is the mother of success.
  2) failure of crops
  3) He died of heart failure.
  4) A wise man is superior to flattery.
  5) James is superior to bribery.
  6) John Adams succeeded Washington as President of the USA.
  7) He soon succeeded Joffre as Command-in-chief.
  8) Only ten of the crew survived the shipwreck.
  9) She survived her own daughter by ten years.
  10) I never go past my old school but I think of my English teacher. (conj.)
  11) To learn English well is nothing but a piece of cake. (prep.)
  12) “If I can but see one of my daughters happily settled at Netherfield, I shall have nothing to wish for.” (adv. Pride and Prejudice)
  13) There are few of us but admire your determination. (relative pron. , but = who do not)
  14) But me no buts! (v.; n.) C) Synonyms and morphologically-similar words:
  1) empty/vacant; cheap/inexpensive; ugly/homely; lonely/solitary; happiness/bliss;

  3) …and…→ …as well as… The advantages by the proposal are obvious and many, as well as of the highest importance. He gave me money as well as advice. Revolution in the Marxist sense means a moral as well as a material change.
  4) Conjunctions: [Addition]: also; and; too; besides; further; furthermore; in addition; moreover; [Contrast]: but; however; although; while; yet; on the other hand; conversely; in contrast; nevertheless; nonetheless; on the contrary; otherwise; still; unlike; [Reason]: because; for; as; since; for that (simple) reason; [Result]: so; then; therefore; as a result; thus; accordingly; consequently; hence; so far; thus far; [Conclusion]: in conclusion; to conclude; to sum up; in short; in brief; in other words;

Deng Yaping is a very good athlete. → …is an excellent athlete. very → extremely; exceedingly; terribly; awfully; pretty “Brevity is the soul of wit.” (William Shakespeare) This is the book which I like best. → This is my favorite book. I have a bag which is black. → I have a black bag. He needs to learn to control his temper. → curb We must take positive measures to control inflation. → curb As to the journey, we must decide about that later. Scientists differ as to whether the giant panda belongs to the bear or panda family. III. Broadening your outlook “If you are learning a language, you are really learning everything.” (L. G. Alexander) 语言之有魅力,风格之值得研究,主要是因为后面有一个大的精神世界;但这两者又必须艺术地融合 在一起,因此语言表达力同思想洞察力又是互相促进的。 (王佐良) 大量阅读对英语学习至关重要,没有大量阅读很难学好英语。现今学生的一个通病是阅读量太小,拘 泥于短文章上的“精耕细作” ,产生不了语感,因而口笔语都缺少外国味。多读文学作品和外国报刊不 失为一剂良药。 (黄源深) Some jokes:

In the second place, …. In the last place, …. Since/ As every coin has two sides, ….
