Ce livre d'exercices a été conçu comme un complément aux manuels de vocabulaire classiques. In so many words s'attache :
- aux champs sémantiques les moins approfondis parce que les plus riches : c'est le cas du vocabulaire concret des sons, de la lumière, du mouvement, des façons de regarder ou de parler,
- aux expressions idiomatiques,
- à l'association des mots entre eux.
Une dernière partie est consacrée aux faux-amis ainsi qu'à un glossaire de mots qui sont souvent sources d'erreurs.
- Un concept original : il n'existe pas d'ouvrage comparable
- Les exercices sont tous corrigés et permettent donc :
• à l'étudiant d'un bon niveau de se tester et d'approfondir quelques points
• à l'étudiant moins avancé de se servir des corrigés et des conseils pour acquérir du vocabulaire
- Pour chaque exercice, une première réponse est donnée pour aider l'étudiant à démarrer l'exercice.
- Nouvelle maquette, plus claire.
1. Choisir le mot juste

« Agnès Grey » est le premier des deux romans de l'écrivain anglais Anne Brontë. Publié en décembre 1847 sous le pseudonyme d'Acton Bell, il paraît en France pour la première fois en 1859. Le roman est fondé sur la propre expérience de l'auteur comme gouvernante, et présente certains rapports stylistiques avec les œuvres de l'auteur anglais Jane Austen (1775-1817), plus importants que dans les textes suivants. À l'instar de « Jane Eyre », écrit par Charlotte, la sœur d'Anne (publié en octobre 1847), le livre décrit la position précaire des gouvernantes et la façon dont les jeunes femmes exerçant cette profession en sont affectées.
"Agnes Grey" is the debut novel of English author Anne Brontë (writing under the pen name of Acton Bell), first published in December 1847, and republished in a second edition in 1850. The novel follows Agnes Grey, a governess, as she works within families of the English gentry. Scholarship and comments by Anne's sister Charlotte Brontë suggest the novel is largely based on Anne Brontë's own experiences as a governess for five years. Like her sister Charlotte's novel "Jane Eyre", it addresses what the precarious position of governess entailed and how it affected a young woman. The choice of central character allows Anne to deal with issues of oppression and abuse of women and governesses, isolation and ideas of empathy. An additional theme is the fair treatment of animals. "Agnes Grey" also mimics some of the stylistic approaches of bildungsromans, employing ideas of personal growth and coming to age, but representing a character who in fact does not gain in virtue. The Irish novelist George Moore praised "Agnes Grey" as "the most perfect prose narrative in English letters," and went so far as to compare Anne's prose to that of Jane Austen. Modern critics have made more subdued claims admiring Agnes Grey with a less overt praise of Brontë's work than Moore.

"Rarely have sexuality and war been treated with such poignancy and historical concreteness .... The force of these often intertwined phenomena endemic to the human condition are considered with incisive and wrenching specificity from within one of the most baneful convergences of sexuality and war in recent history."
—Djelal Kadir, editor, World Literature Today.
"Personal, powerful, passionate, uncensored."
—Fedwa Malti-Douglas, The Journal of Women's History.
A welcome departure from stereotypical nationalist conceptions from which no solutions to the current impasse can possibly emerge."
—Joel Benin, The Middle East Report.
Accad's extraordinary pacifism is deeply compelling to women as it is deeply challenging to men."
A splendid book. Drawing on interviews with Lebanon's village women and her close readings of Lebanon's contemporary novelists, Accad manages to pull back the veil that has shrouded so many conventional nationalisms, revealing their roots in men's effort to control women's sexuality."
—Cynthia Enloe, author of Does Khaki Become You?
"Extraordinary in weaving together literature, feminist theory, and theories of war and violence. Her analysis of the relationships between sexuality, war, and nationalism is stunning in its frankness and importance."
—Berenice A. Carroll, Purdue University.
"It is in the women's writings on the Lebanese civil war that Accad discerns alternative visions that could shape a non- violent reality."
—Miriam Cooke, The Middle East Studies.
This book should remind us how patriarchies can operate similarly in societies we most often define through difference .... [Accad's] forthright, critically respectful, caring treatment of Lebanese lives and worlds resonates as we engage with the longterm repercussions of the Gulf War.
—Marilyn Booth, Women's Review of Books.
This compelling book offers an exploration of the indissoluble link between war and sexuality based on over twelve years of interviews by the well-known Lebanese expatriate teacher, critic, and writer.
Evelyne Accad explores what she calls the indissoluble link between war and sexualtiy. She refers to sexuality as the physical and psychological relations of men and women, and examines Middle Eastern customs involved in defining such relationships. She argues that many of the problems faced by societies at war stem from the way male sexuality is viewed and imposed and from the oppression of women within cultural parameters.
For twelve years Professor Accad interviewed women throughout the Middle East about their sexuality and relationships with men. On the basis of these interviews and a close study of six novels written by both men and women on the subject of the Lebanese war, she explores the connection between sexualtity and war and contrasts the reactions of male authors with those of their female counterparts. Each author views war as having roots in sexuality.
Evelyne Accad concludes that "there is a need for a new rapport between men and women, women and women, and men and men: there is a ned for relationshops based on trust, recognition of the other, tenderness, equal sharing, and love devoid of jealousy and possession. Since the personal is the political, changes in relationshops traditionally based on domination, oppression, and power games will inevitably rebound in other spheres of life.
