While the ability to acquire new words is faster in children as compared to adults, vocabulary can be built over time. How to improve Vocabulary for CAT? The following steps can come handy while preparing for CAT Exam Vocabulary:

1. Reading

Reading is an excellent way of improving one’s vocabulary. The more one reads, be it novels, magazines, journals or newspapers, the more one is exposed to different words. Once you develop the habit of struggling with difficult words, rather than ignoring them, and learn to decipher the meanings either from the context or a dictionary, you are on your way to building up your vocabulary.

2. Memorising the roots

As a large number of English words are derived from their Latin and Greek roots, memorising the roots of such words will enable you to unravel all the other words containing that root. So, for every root word that you memorise, you will be able to guess the meaning of other words (formed by adding a suffix or prefix) which contain that root word. 

3. Linkages

For every new word you learn, try to link the word with another word. For instance, the colour ‘green’ can be linked to forest, trees, afforestation, nature and so on. Making such linkages will enable you to remember the word for a longer time and also make it easy for your mind to recall the word.

4. Make friends with a dictionary

A dictionary is a great tool to enhance your vocabulary, provided you are willing to make that effort of spending regular time with a dictionary. A dictionary is a repository of millions of words, waiting for you to be unravelled. 

5. Use language

If you do not use the language often, you will deny yourself the opportunity to use or test your vocabulary in the real world. Therefore, find avenues to speak or write in the language and surround yourself with people who speak the language.

A good vocabulary, is a must have in today’s competitive world. It certainly gives you an edge over
