    Abstract :
    Pertaining to English teaching, vocabulary assumes more importance because without words disseminating information is liable to be fractured. Vocabulary teaching does not mean giving merely the denotative aspect of words concerned. Words involve connotation also and such connotations in order to be taught, require flourishing literary references. Quoting different contexts in which words assume meanings, will provide not only delight to the learner but is also capable of providing enlightenment in the usage of words in different contexts. In order to prove this, researcher deals with ten words which will enlighten us as to their standing in vocabulary teaching? Vocabulary is a set of common words in a language. A vocabulary, usually built up with age, remains as a helpful and primary tool for communication and gaining knowledge. Gaining an extensive vocabulary is one of the biggest challenges in mastering a second language.
