Pay attention to these words as you encounter them in Wuthering Heights. You will have a quiz on them at the appropriate times in your reading. You will be given them in a quotation and will need to choose which definition is used in that quotation. Use your own judgment to determine whether you need to use a dictionary or simply context clues as you read. Be aware that I may actually choose other words also, but these will be my focus. Generally we need to understand most words in something we read to actually know what it has said. I have divided them into the rough sections the novel falls into.
