How English Words Really Work: An Introduction to Morphology

To master reading and spelling children need to learn not only the sound structure of words but that they also have a morphological structure, in other words can be split into units of meaning. This knowledge enables learners to improve their skills decoding and spelling beyond syllable patterns and discover that both spelling/ semantic links across words are an invaluable influence on their vocabulary development. Beginning with an exploration of everyday base words and affixes, the course will show how to apply your knowledge of these patterns to the teaching of multisyllabic English words of Latin origin, and its potential to enhance vocabulary skills.
