Building a Better Vocabulary, Course Guidebook, Flanigan K., 2015.

   In this course, you’ll learn how to move beyond definitional vocabulary knowledge toward a rich vocabulary that’s broad, deep, and flexible and lasts a lifetime. To do this, we’ll cover five core principles of vocabulary learning in the first lecture. These principles will serve as tools in your vocabulary toolbox that you can apply as we explore new target words throughout the course. You will use these tools to learn word meanings deeply so that you’ll remember and be able to use the words years from now.

The Spelling-Meaning Connection.
In our first lecture, we discussed five core principles of effective vocabulary learning: starting with clear definitions, putting words into context, making connections between known concepts and new words, exploring the morphology and etymology of words, and chunking words by meaning in our mental lexicons. This last principle takes advantage of the fact that our minds organize information, including words, according to schema, or mental file folders. In this lecture, we’ll delve a bit deeper into the morphological system of English to explore one of the big “secrets” of vocabulary learning: Just as our minds organize language, so, too, language has a system for organizing words.

One of the keys to unlocking this morphological system is a concept known as the spelling-meaning connection, a term coined by vocabulary researcher Shane Templeton. Think of morphology as the umbrella term here, and the spelling-meaning connection as an important tool we can use to decode that system. The spelling-meaning connection also shows us that our spelling system makes more sense than you may think.
