Exercises on Accurately Recognizing Latin Word Forms

The purpose of this exercise to increase speed and accuracy in word recognition. Developing automatic recognition frees up brain space in working memory for processing other aspects of reading sentences. It also improves your reading by helping to develop unconscious familiarity with Latin word types (combinations of consonants and vowels and where and which ones differentiate Latin words), thus decreasing mistranslations of misidentified words. The object is (or seems) simple: find the word that is exactly the same as the word given (including vowel length). Note that there is a timer above. Click “start” on the timer to start. The timer will stop automatically when you click on “submit” at the end of the exercise to check your answers and get your score. You can repeat the exercise to work to improve your time and/or score. If you reload the page (Refresh: circle arrow icon), you will get a different version.

Choose the word that is exactly the same as the word given:
