How to Pronounce 'AMPHIBOLOGY'- English Grammar


In this episode, we cover the pronunciation of the word amphibology. This word refers to the ambiguous meaning of sentence due due to confusing grammar patterns. A good example for this would be He sees more of his children than his wife. This sentence is an amphibology as it has two meanings. It could either mean that the husband sees his children more often than his wife sees their children, or it could mean that the husband sees his children more often than he sees his wife.

I was one of those teachers who approached writing with doubt in mind because I too felt that valuable class time was spent on writing, taking away important teaching time. This unit showed me the importance of writing in the classroom because the teacher is always at hand to assist where help is needed. Writing is not just for homework. Homework often isn't done.This unit feels like the \"teaching\" part of the course is coming together. I would still enjoy learning about the first lesson given to students who do not no one word of English. I have ideas, like putting name cards on objects around the classroom and teaching them how to greet each other and the teacher, but would like to learn more about how to go about it.
