Enter a word
Click "Add a New Word," type the target word, and select its part of speech. Remember that you can select several options at once (for a word like "round" that can be a noun, a verb, or an adjective, depending on the context). Lexis works best with nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. Function words (such as prepositions or conjunctions) are best taught in context and through grammatical exercises, so we recommend against entering them in Lexis.
