Vocabulary Development

Language comprises essentially of three aspects:

  • Thought
  • Words
  • Grammar

Thought
The one thing common to all languages is the expressed thought. There has traditionally been a debate over thought's precedence over language. What is absolutely certain is that the two complement each other. Following the example of the French philosopher Jacques Derrida, let us say that language depends upon rules even as it makes them.

Words
The backbone of any language is its vocabulary; the words and idioms, the local expressions that it employs and comprises of. Since the class comprises mainly of students seeking English language training, it serves its purpose well by remembering that English evolved as a standard language by 1066. It was in that year that the first legal judgment was delivered in the English language. Before that in England, the class languages were Latin and French. (Elaborate)
