    word meaning


    My name is jan-jan and I'm new here~!

    Can someone help me how to identify words without using a dictionary? I really have a hard time with words that I don't understand.

    Even just a clue would be nice.

    Thank you~!

    Re: word meaning

    Look at the context and ask some basic questions- is it a noun, adjective, etc? does it have a positive or negative meaning? is it important for the context? does it look like any other word I know?
