Welcome back! Here’s another one of those head-scratching lessons that can confuse people. You have synonyms, and partial synonyms.
Let’s look at some of these words down below and see if we can match some of the synonyms with their partials.
Bright, cheerful, clever, difficult, elderly, friendly, glad, happy, hard, intelligent, old, outgoing, slim, social, thin.
Put the words in their categories.
Based on the stress of the word, I want you to write to enunciate the words above and ask yourself how many syllables each one has. Example, talkative. The first syllable is stressed and there are three total.
Choose the best alternative. If there is no difference, choose both.
