All about the NYMS of English | Learning English from A to Z

In this element of “Fun with Words” , I suppose that teaching the roots of words is essential. Learning unique words gives enjoyment to the learner, thereby enhancing communication skills. Talking about word roots and foundation, the direction of the word to its present-day form is one of the most fascinating ideas. During my sessions with students, I frequently inspire them to crack down words and concentrate on expression rather than verbatim. This blog post too is aimed at understanding all about “nyms” in English.

How did this all start?

“Nym” originates from the Greek word for name or word. People may be aware about these “nyms” somewhere or the other.

We’ve all been involved with words that have similar or opposite meanings, so no surprise for identifying synonym and antonym. In the virtual world , mostly people seem to count on pseudonym. But what about some of the unheard of and not so popular known- “nyms”?

If you guess more than five of these 16 terms without searching for definitions, you’re qualified to name yourself an honest Nymskull!

Let’s now look at the types of “nyms” in English: 

1.  Acronym

An abbreviation formed from the initial words.

2. Allonym

A fictious name used by an author.

3. Charactonym

A name of a fictional character that indicates a particular quality/feature of that character.

4. Cryptonym

A code name that is secretly used to mention a person, place or thing. 

5. Aptronym

A person’s name that best suits his occupation/profession often in a comical way. For example- Mr. Sweet, the owner of an ice cream Parlor.

6. Demonym

A Demonym is a word that recognizes a group of people ( inhabitants, residents, natives) in connection to a specific place.

7. Endonym

A name used by a group or category of people to call  themselves or their language, in opposition to a name given to them by other groups.

8. Eponym 

An eponym is either a person for whom something is named, or a thing named for a person.

9. Exonym 

A name given to a place by foreigners . 

Vienna, for example, is the English exonym for the German and Austrian Wien.

10. Heteronym

A word that is spelled the same as another word but has a different pronunciation and meaning. Such as- ‘tear’ means to rip off something and ‘tear’ means liquid from the eye. 

11. Homonym

It may be a word that has the same sound to another word but has a different meaning and spelling or in some cases it can also be a word that has exactly the same spelling and sound to another word but means different. For example- too and two or quail ( bird) and quail (to cringe)

12. Hypernym

A word whose meaning involves the meanings of other words. Flower is a hypernym that involves more definite varieties like rose, sunflower, lilies, daisy

13. Metonym

It is used as a substitute for something else with which it is associated. For example- White house is a common metonym for the US. President and his/her staff.

14. Mononym

A single word name by which a person is popularly known as. For example- Shakespeare.

15. Oronym

It is a word or phrase that sounds almost the same as another word or phrase as an outcome of sounds running together.

16. Retronym

A fresh term designed from an existing word for the purpose of differentiating the original or older version , form or example of a product from another latest product , version or form. Such as an acoustic guitar, analog watch or snail- mail

How changes in English Language influences root words 

Assembling words can help people master vocabulary more easily. As you have just glanced, there are several ways to assemble/group words. Words can be grouped by almost identical (similar) sounds or they can be organized by meaning or ideas. There are nearly a million words in the English language. Mastering all of them would be a tough task. It is comfortable to memorize the types of nyms and their meanings if they are entirely grouped with similar words and ideas. 

Instantly after we knock up students perception and inquisitiveness in the English language, we lead them to acknowledge more of what they read and to be more innovative in their writing. The primary motive is to make words memorable instead of memorized. We know sparkling participation can tempt even the most unwilling learner, therefore detecting ways to encourage all children is critical. 

With the world moving at a rapid speed approaching a multinational lifestyle, it has become essential to adapt oneself to the basic needs for the same. One of the most important factors of a multinational culture is that of English-speaking skills. There has been an obsession for the growth of English spoken skills which has led to an increase in Live English classes for kids. It’s main motive is to inculcate the routine of spoken English in young kids from an early age so that they don’t hang back in the advanced world. This can be done with the support of several online spoken English platforms for children which has recognized a desperate escalation in numbers.

They grant learners to experience a unique learning environment that they can’t acquire at local schools and steal plethora of knowledge from master educators. Also as these courses are relaxed and undemanding, students get a chance to decide how much work they want to do in any given day or week.

6. Prolonged learning

And because these classes are online therefore there are plenty of innovative games and activities that keep the child engrossed while they learn. Hence proved- IT’S A PROFITABLE SITUATION
