Word Power: Phrasal Verbs and Compounds - a Cognitive Approach

by Brygida Rudzka-Ostyn

This textbook contains some 1,100 phrasal verbs and compounds used with 17 particles and/or prepositions which combine with some 500 different verbs, nouns or adjectives. The book deals in the first place with the major problems encountered by even advanced students, viz. understanding and mastering the metaphorical meanings of the particles and the phrasal verbs as a whole.

Secondly, depending on the students’ level of competence, the book confronts them with another 2,500 to 3,000 less frequently used words in the sentences, explanations, collocations and glosses in connection with the phrasal verbs and compounds. These words constitute an equally essential part of the book and need to be mastered to the same extent as the phrasal material itself.

In order to help more advanced adult learners to rapidly and significantly expand their lexicon, the basis of accurate and fluent communication, we have implemented some of the major findings from both cognitive and applied linguistics.

The phrasal verbs and compounds are grouped around each particle. This particle-based arrangement reveals the networks of related meanings of the particles. As experiments have shown, this fascinating insight-oriented approach – visually enhanced by intentionally abstract drawings – enables and encourages students to create their own contextual schemata, which all contribute to learning the metaphorical extensions faster, better, and above all, in a
much more gratifying way.
