This week’s Musing Mondays from Should Be Reading asks…
“This week’s musing asks…
If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away? “
Not really. I normally try to understand the word’s meaning from the rest of the sentence. Actually that’s how I learn. I rely more on my own intelligence and capacity to grasp the meaning of things than conventional learning methods. I may make mistakes, of course, but I feel more comfortable that way.
I’m the same 🙂
Here’s my MM:
Glad to see someone like me! 🙂
I usually try to figure it out myself, also! 🙂 bookyaddict.blogspot.com/2012/05/musing-mondays.html
Hey nice to see someone like me! 🙂
I’m a contextual reader, too, but the built-in dictionary is one of my favorite Nook features!
I don’t have an e-reader yet but I am sure a built in dictionary would be a good thing if I had one. 🙂
I like to figure it out from context also, but I still look up the word to make sure I have it right 🙂 http://whatsontheshelf.wordpress.com/2012/05/28/musing-monday-11/
I guess I should stop being lazy and do that too. 🙂
if there are too many words I do not know when I read a passage, I think that the writer is being a jerk–if there is only one, I look it up
LOL! I do believe when authors needlessly use difficult words they ARE being jerks.
I am a word hound, this was a great question this week. I love the dictionary build in with the Kindle! HERE IS MY MM
That built in dictionary in Kindle is a blessing to many.
I usually go search what the word means if I can’t figure out what it means from the sentence.
I can’t say I do that. I am way too lazy, I guess. 😉
as soon as I come along a word I don’t know, I will have to decide what to do! lol
Hmmm…maybe the books you’re reading are too easy? 😉
