Merriam-Webster Vocabulary Builder

Tags: english, vocabulary

For students preparing for standardized tests, including the SAT, ACT, ESL, TOEFL, and TOEIC. Also for homeschoolers and remote learners. Organized by 250 Greek and Latin roots as the building blocks for words, this book will aid in learning 1,200 words while introducing 2,000 more words. Includes quizzes after each root discussion to test progress.

Notes about the deck design:

  • A well designed deck of “Merriam-Webster Vocabulary Builder”.
  • For each unit, first the ROOT of the words is introduced. (cloze)
  • Then WORDS based on the ROOT is introduced. (cloze, reverse)
  • At the end of the unit QUIZZES are presented for review. (basic)
  • Night Mode!

Cloze Deletions are auto generated using spaCy. (expect weird stuff) ~ https://spacy.io/

Merriam Webster doesn’t use IPA, so all IPA is auto generated using “eng_to_ipa”. ~ https://pypi.org/project/eng-to-ipa/

Vim Single Keybindings

Tags: vim, programming

All the single key bindings in vim. Compiled from here.

Excludes unbound keys because why would you want to memorize those.

Definitions (from the website):

  • word - a lower-case word (“w”, “b”, “e” commands) is defined by a consecutive string of letters, numbers, or underscore, or a consecutive string of characters that is not any of {letters, numbers, underscore, whitespace}
  • Word - an upper-case word (“W”, “B”, “E” commands) is a consecutive sequence of non-whitespace.
  • sentence
  • paragraph
  • cursor motion command - any command which positions the cursor is ok here, including the use of numeric prefixes. In addition, a repeat of the edit command usually means to apply to the entire current line. For example, “<<” means shift current line left; “cc” means replace entire current line; and “dd” means delete entire current line. >>

It differs from the Merriam-Webster Vocabulary Builder deck as in it doesn’t include the “Explanation Text and Word Definition” cloze cards which are rather time consuming.
