What's Important to Know About Words of Written Language?

This chapter develops three ideas about how the origins of English words influence reading: (a) knowing about a word’s origin helps in understanding its structure and meaning, (b) English has many words, a small number of which are used often and many of which are used rarely, and (c) the often-used words have some special features that can challenge beginning readers and English language learners (ELLs).
