Trimble Writing Exercise #3
This writing exercise has two parts. Please use this form to complete both parts and then
submit it to me using the drop box in the Week 3 Module.
Part 1: Choose two words from this week’s assigned reading that you did not know the
meanings of. Look up the words in a dictionary and IN YOUR OWN WORDS explain the
definition for each. After your definition, use each word in a new sentence of your own.
Term 1:
Term 2:
Part 2: On page 41 of Writing With Style, John Trimble provides a list of “bookish”
adverbs, or adverbs used chiefly in print (as opposed to conversation). Use the space
below to write a 4-5 sentence paragraph (about anything you want!) that uses AT LEAST
THREE adverbs from the list. Remember, to get the full power from these words, you
should begin your sentence with the bookish adverb.
