Meanings of Words

Thinking about the teaching I do both in person and over the web had me thinking about the dictionary meanings of certain terms relating to what the students hopefully do.

learn verb to acquire knowledge of or skill in by study, instruction, or experience. Present tense – learning, past tense learnt.

learned adjective having much knowledge gained by study, scholarly. Adverb – learnedly, noun – learnedness.

So now you know what I mean when I say that you achieve learnedness through studying learnedly and I hope that you remember what you learnt in order to become a more learned person.
