Guess their meaning from the context. Check with your teacher or with a dictionary. T he first time I noticed this phenomenon was a few years ago, in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome - a crowd of people At first, I wasn't too worried when I saw people photographing the paintings. It was a little irritating, but that was all. It didn't make me angry.

Then the sad truth hit me. Most of the people were taking photos without looking at the paintings themselves. People were pushing me, not because they were trying to get a better view of the art, but because they wanted to make sure that no one blocked their photo.

Was it possible that maybe they were taking the photos so that they could admire the paintings better when they got home? This was very improbable. They were not there to see the paintings, but to take photos to prove that they had been there.

Then it got worse. Now people were taking photos of their partners or friends who were posing next to, or in front of some of the most famous paintings. Neither the photographers nor the person they were photographing had looked at the art itself, although I saw that sometimes they read the label, to make sure that the artist really was famous. At least nobody asked me to take a picture of them together, smiling in front of a Picasso! I think that photography in museums should be banned, but I also have a less drastic solution.

I think that people who want to take a photo of an exhibit should be forced to look at it first, for at least one minute. Can you? Was it to travel somewhere where? Then cover the words and look at the symbols. Remember che words and phrases.

Practice saying them correctly. Do you know what they mean? YouTlIbe '! Every three months. One recent update contained new words, new expressions. But where do they all come from? New words are created in many different ways.

We can make a new word bycombining t wo words. Sometimes we put two words together in a new way. We also find that nouns can change into verbs. Take the word text. Text was always a noun from about , according to the OED , but it is now very common as a verb, to text somebody. Other new words already existed, but with a djfferent meaning.

For example, tweet was the noise that a bird makes, but now we use it more often as a verb or a noun for a message that people put on the social networking site Twitter. Another way in which we make new words is by "adopting" words from foreign languages, like barista or latte imported from Italian when coffee shops became really popular in the US in the s. A lot of new words come from the names of brands or companies, for example, we play music on an iPod and we google information. We also need more general words to describe new technology or new gadgets: The invention of new words is not a new phenomenon.

The difference now is how quickly new words and expressions enter the language and how quickly we start to use and understand them. Mark the sentences T true or F false.
