"One of the most popular features in the Reader's Digest has been It Pays To Enrich Your Word Power. Carried every month, generations of readers, especially in India, have used it to sharpen their ability to use English correctly and with style. Each month this feature not only gives the meaning of a selection of words that have something in common, but also information on their usage, origins, and how unfamiliar ones should be pronounced.
This book offers a selection of this very informative and entertaining feature. Quiz yourself with our third book on Word Power and improve your all-important language skills. Then enjoy it with family or friends."

Words are an adventure, words are fun. We cannot live without them. But what do we really know about them?
Over the years, the monthly issues of The Reader's Digest have contained, and still contain, a feature called It Pays To Increase Your Word Power which was devised by the great lexicographer Wilfred Funk. This monthly feature is a test of twenty key words each followed by four possible meanings. The reader ticks his opinions against the answers which are provided.
In many of these answers, the derivations are given, and derivations can be exciting, for many words are alive with history.
So test yourself on these extracts from The Reader's Digest. Use them to help you in your reading and writing, and use them, as well as the word-play pieces which are included here and there throughout the book to have fun with your friends and your family.

Words are our most familiar and useful tools, the first we learn to use, and the most essential for success and happiness. This delightful collection of articles, puzzles, tests and stories for the entire family is the fun and fascinating way to enrich and enlarge your mastery of the art of language.
