Review by: N. Gill, about.com - July 14, 2007
Words and Ideas Answer Key Saturday July 14, 2007 In 2002, William J. Dominik wrote a book on word derivations called Words and Ideas. It was suitable for a variety of users, from autodidacts to teachers. The book contains bibliographies, exercises, websites, and invaluable "Word for Word" cartoon strips. For more on this 281-page gem, see my review of Words and Ideas. Dominik has recently come out with a companion answer key to Words and Ideas that was printed by Bolchazy-Carducci in 2007. Again, this is a great resource for the autodidact. Although the answers to the material are in the original, you need to spend time looking for them, and sometimes, even if the material is there, it is hard to grasp the essentials, so it can be useful to have the answers spelled out. The answer key doesn't force you to refer back and forth from one book to the other, but should you want to, the page numbers for the original exercises are included in the key. Instead, when there are matching questions, the whole question is repeated. Essay answers are thorough. Short identifications present model answers. Exercises that involve completing tables show the entire, completed table in the same format. Although there is meatier material in the areas on philosophy and psychology, I will include a straightforward sample Q&A on word derivations based on Words and Ideas Chapter 8. Q: "dependency" A: "The base of dependency is pend-, which means "hang," and is combined with the prefix de-, which means "down" and "away from." The word is derived from Latin dependere, which means "to hang from," and means something that is subordinate and depends (literally, "hangs") on something else." N. S.
