Section: 1 Clues from Context > Cause and Effect

Chapter 5. Cause and Effect

Statements expressing cause-and-effect relationships provide useful context information to help you interpret unfamiliar words or phrases. Cause-and-effect relationships tell us what happened (the effect or result) and why it happened (the cause).

In this lesson, you will learn to reason about word meanings by using cause-and-effect clues together with your common sense and experience.
