CONTEXT CLUES What are Context Clues? Context clues are CLUES found in a text that may help you to figure out the definition of a word that you do not know. You may find a context clue: in the sentence before the difficult word in the same sentence as the difficult word in the sentence after the difficult word Sometimes context clues give a specific example to help define the difficult word. Example: My siblings, my five sisters and brothers, are all coming to my game. You might not know what the word siblings means but there is a context clue in the same sentence that helps you figure out what it means. Sibling is another word for brother and/or sister. A context clue may also include a word that means the same thing (a synonym) as the difficult word in the sentence. Example: The problem of the day was baffling. It was too confusing for me to solve. You might not know what the word baffling means, but there is a context clue in the next sentence that helps you figure out what it means. The context clue is a synonym of the word baffling. Baffling is another word for confusing. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved. Permission is granted for the purchaser to print copies for non-commercial educational purposes only.

A context clue may also include a word that means the opposite (an antonym) of the difficult word in the sentence. Example: I am not scared of small spiders but I am definitely scared of that immense spider. You might not know what the word immense means, but there is a context clue in the same sentence that helps you figure out what it means. The context clue is an antonym of the word immense. Immense means big, which is the opposite of small. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
