James Xianxing Du


This article presents a revolutionary method of learning vocabulary, based on multilingual mutual match in biblical etymology. Using languages of China and English as model languages, I present not only linguistic evidence on biblical etymology of words but also words as examples for this novel approach, enhancing learners’ interest in efficiently understanding both native and foreign words.
