48 Vocabulary Strategy (p. 538) Dictionary/Glossary Sometimes the sentences around an unfamiliar word don’t have context clues to help you find its meaning. Then you should look up the word in a dictionary or glossary. Follow these steps. 1.Look to see whether the book has a glossary. If not, then use a dictionary. 2.Find the word entry. If the pronunciation is given, read it aloud. You may recognize the word when you hear yourself say it. 3.Look over all the meanings listed in the entry. Try each meaning in the sentence with the unfamiliar word. 4.Choose the meaning that makes sense in your sentence. As you read “In the Ocean Deeps,” use a dictionary or the glossary to find the meanings of words you cannot figure out from the text.
