The Final Exam Edition #3: About Words

The WORDmeister says: For Day 3 of Final Exam Week as the first half of this WORD season comes to a close, some enduring advice for students completing projects and exams.

Know Words

To love anything, you must first know it. To love words, you must first know what they are. . . .  They have their own historical and etymological associations, their own romantic and environmental dalliances, their own sonic and visual delights.
