The semantic field of death is one of the most important ones in all English texts. Writers use it all the time! You can find it in all sorts of texts: Shakespeare, Shelley, Orwell and Dickens – just to name a few! That is why this word search can be a great help to you. It doesn’t matter what level of study you’re at. You need to know and understand the semantic field of death. You will have to face it at some point in your English studies.
This worksheet is a good way to brush up on your knowledge of words associated with death. Since there are no clues, you have to think of words in the semantic field of death on your own. That means that you can use this word search to get used to thinking of words that have something to do with death. So, you’re more likely to notice it when you see it. You can revise for your English exams in a way that doesn’t feel like the usual studying!
Beware of the red herrings, though. In some of the word searches, I have put some extra words in to confuse you. Make sure that you only choose words that are associated with death! That will help you to keep on track. After all, if you’re reading a text, you have to be able to separate the words in the semantic field of death from those that aren’t.
This word search has 22 official terms. However, loads more words fit in this semantic field! Make sure that you list any extra words down in your notes to revise later on.
How the Semantic Field of Death Word Search Can Help You
The government gets the final say in what we need to study for our exams. For the English national curriculum, they expect you to use “subject terminology”. This includes words like “metaphor” and “pronoun”.
The good thing is that the term “semantic field” counts! So, if you know how to use the term properly, you can successfully speak about semantic fields in your exams and essays. It’s a great way to boost your marks! Since most texts speak about death, this word search will help you to ensure you can speak about semantic fields. Including subject terminology is where you can get the easy marks. So, why not revise some terms in a fun way?
Plus, it is great for your creative writing, too! Exam boards want you to keep your tone consistent throughout your piece of prose. One way to do this is to use words in the same semantic field throughout your work. So, the more of them you know, the better!
