Vocabulary refers to the body of words used in any language. For a proficient use of the language in all its aspects, a comprehensive knowledge of vocabulary is an asset. Those who have good word-power are usually considered to have a good command of the language. Words differ in meaning depending on the sphere in which they are  used. For example the vocabulary of law is different from the vocabulary of medicine or business. So it is important to have a wide understanding of vocabulary. The articles in the section focus on word building techniques and vocabulary enhancing methods.
