        A strong command of the English language is directly linked
to career advancement and our social success. Every day people
judge us by the words we use. Right or wrong, but they make
assumptions about our intelligence, our education or our capabilities.
Nothing makes a better impression than a solid mastery of the
English language. A person, who can‟t express ideas eloquently, who
hesitates of the uncertainty about the right word may appear less than
fully competent and qualified. It‟s time to be equipped to speak with
confidence at all times. These tests are likely to help you amass and
possess a powerful vocabulary, avoid embarrassing mistakes and
remove obstacles in your path.

        Very often, when there is no regular adjective form for a verb,
the present or past participle of the verb can be used as an adjective.
It is sometimes difficult for foreign students to decide whether to use
the present [verb + ing] or past [verb + ed] or [verb + en] participle
as an adjective.
        The present participle [verb + ing] is used as an adjective
when the noun it modifies performs or is responsible for an action.
The verb is usually intransitive (it doesn‟t take an object) and the
verb form of the sentence is the progressive (continuous) aspect.
        The crying baby woke Mr. Binion.
               (The baby was crying).
        The purring kitten snuggled close to the fireplace.
               (The kitten was purring).
        The blooming flowers in the meadow created a rainbow of
               (The flowers were blooming).
        The past participle is used as an adjective when the noun it
modifies is the receiver of the action. The sentence from which this
adjective comes is generally in the passive aspect.
        The sorted mail was delivered to the offices before noon.
               (The mail had been sorted).
        Frozen food is often easier to prepare than fresh food.
               (The food had been frozen).
        The imprisoned men were unhappy with their living
               (The men had been imprisoned).
        Other verbs such as interest, bore, excite, and frighten are
even more difficult. The rule is basically the same as that given
above. The [verb + ing] form is used when the noun causes the action
and the [verb + ed] form is used when it receives the action.
Compare the following groups of sentences.
        The boring professor put the students to sleep.
        The boring lecture put the students to sleep.
        The bored students went to sleep during the boring lecture.
        The child saw a frightening movie.

      This section contains information and exercises on commonly
misused words, confusingly related words, use of prepositions, and
two-word verbs. With each section are example sentences and
exercises. The answers to the exercises will be found at the end of
this section.
        It should be noted that the material presented here may appear
not only in the reading comprehension section of TOEFL but also in
the grammar section and even in the listening comprehension
section. Prior to July 1995, TOEFL contained a separate vocabulary
section, but that has been eliminated. Vocabulary is tested in the
reading comprehension section in order to provide contextual clues
about the definitions. Therefore, you should take advantage of the
fact that the words appear in context by using the clues contained in
the reading passage to assist in choosing the correct synonym.
        Memorizing long lists of words may result in frustration and
is actually not very useful. There is no way to know which of the
words you memorize will appear on TOEFL. Therefore, you should
try to improve your vocabulary as you improve your English in
general. The following suggestions will be useful in helping you
improve your vocabulary.

        1 Read well-written books, magazines, and newspapers.
Magazines such as Time and Newsweek, for example, and major
newspapers contain sophisticated vocabulary and grammatical
constructions. Reading such materials is very useful.
        2 Look up every word that is unfamiliar to you in the practice
tests in this book and in other reading material. Keep a notebook of
unfamiliar words. After looking up the word, write the word, the
definition, and an original sentence in your notebook and study it
        3 Study the problem vocabulary items and two-word verbs
(verbal idioms) in this book.
        4 Review your vocabulary word notebook often. Repetition
will help you to remember the meaning of difficult words.


       The following words are often misused by native English
speakers as well as nonnative speakers. Sometimes the spellings are
so similar that people fail to distinguish between them. Others are
pronounced exactly the same, but they are spelled differently and

homonyms. Study the words, parts of speech (noun, verb, etc.),
