Vocabulary for SAT

Vishal Bhatia

Can you tell the meaning of the following words apart from their more common and well known meanings?


What if I told you that the meaning of these words is also the following?

HABIT — A Garment worn by a person of a religious order

CURRENCY — Something in fashion or vogue

CASHIER — Removal of an army officer due to a misdemeanour

AESTIVATION — The pre exfoliation arrangement of petals in a flower

Such meanings are called secondary meanings of words. A lot of words in English have such secondary meanings as also tertiary meanings.

Whilst there are several word lists and books on Vocabulary available online and in the market, it pays to develop your own Vocabulary in order to crack the Verbal section on tests such as the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test).

It really pays to start working on your vocabulary very early on – say from Class 4 onwards. One can begin with doing Latin and Greek Roots which are frequently encountered in English Language. The roots do come in handy but it helps to work on your own vocabulary book – which is done by active reading and consulting a dictionary at the same time.

A high score on the SAT (in the range of 1500 and upwards) ensures that one can secure a full scholarship to certain USA Universities.
