Learning Focus: Identify the origin of words. Invent own word and apply meaning and usage to them.
How many of the following words did Shakespeare make up himself?
You’ll be amazed to know that they all were. Which ones did you think were modern words?
Now try to make up a word or two yourself then use them in sentences to show their meaning – you never know, one day they may be commonly used and you’ll get the credit for inventing them!
