John Robertson is the author of the phenomenonal book Robertson's Words for a Modern Age (more about the book under Resources > Books). His work for nearly a decade now has been to create an accompanying website about words, and it has grown into an amazingly rich resource not just on words, but on ideas and activities for teachers.

Here are just a few of the rich wealth of resources available at and

  • 67,700 searchable Latin and Greek base and affix cross references
  • 3,650 family-word study units
  • Hundreds of confusing word units
  • Dozens of self-scoring online vocabulary quizzes.
  • 37 units on the history of English
  • 25 topic study units
And lots and lots more. Next to Real Spelling itself, this is the most incredible resource I have found so far.
