Dictionaries are not closed books. There is still plenty of room for more words in these
great vocabulary authorities. New words are continually being created and added to our
language. And many of today's word experts can credit a famous mathematician with the
creation of the method by which they develop many new words. The mathematician was an
Englishman named Charles L. Dodgson. In addition to working with figures, Dodgson wrote books. His imaginative stories and poems have made Dodgson beloved to generations of readers. We know him, however, not by the name of Dodgson but by his pen name, Lewis
Lewis Carroll has delighted countless readers, young and old, with Alice in Wonderland,
Through the Looking Glass, and numerous poems. In these works, Carroll developed dozens
of nonsensical words such as "chortle" and "galumph". Many of these words are combined
naturally with more common words in the English language. Carroll referred to his made-up
words as "portmanteau" words, named after a kind of leather suitcase that opens into two
compartments. The name was well suited, because most of Carroll's words had two
compartments. Rather than being entirely fabricated（虚构）,they were usually made from the
combined parts of two different words. A "snark", for example, clearly came from a snake and a shark.
Although Carroll died long ago, his technique continues to be used today. We clearly see
his influence in such words as smog, brunch, and guesstimate.
21. What does the underlined sentence probably mean according to the passage?
A. Dictionaries are open to the public.
B. Dictionaries are helpful to the public.
C. Dictionaries are ready to welcome new words.
D. The vocabularies in dictionaries are limited.
22. Dodgson's made-up words____.
A. are based on different words B. are borrowed from other languages
C. all come from his poems D. are still widely used
23. This passage is mainly about_________ .
A. how Dodgson wrote his works B. how English words are created
C. how a dictionary is written D. how Dodgson created new words
Hi Maz and Bobby,

Maybe you'll have done your various duties by the end of the evening and we can go for a
drink instead! If you want to relax, I'll be in The Hart, a pub on King Street. Gloria and I are meeting there at about 8:30, as long as nothing else pops up! Don't forget it closes at 10:30 on Sundays.Ok, time to put my feet up and take it easy!

The next time you go grocery shopping, try speaking to other customers. One summer
day, I took a smile and a warm heart into a small store in Oregon and got far more than
I love fresh produce(农产品) in the store, and not just for the amazing colors provided
by summer's bounty (慷慨) or the chance to joy over new choices from other countries. It's
also because I just love watching people pick their produce.
The day I was there I found a sale on amazing cherry tomatoes-along with a woman in
her late 70s. Despite the fact that we were strangers, we began to discuss apples. She noted a
problem with the Pink Ladies. "They tasted like I was eating an unripe green apple from the
tree," she said, twisting her face as if still tasting the sour apple.
I wondered if this is something most of my generation can even remember doing. I
surely do. I mentioned that I often could not resist the green yet tempting fruit swinging from
an apple tree. This was the start for a series of discussions as we shopped-covering such
topics as nutrition, new foods and the quality of produce.
By this time a third woman had joined in our conversation. The three of us continued
along, unexpected friends, chatting about family size and the troubles a mom might have
serving healthful foods that please the whole family.
Eventually we all went our separate ways, but in the dairy(奶制品) section I heard a
small voice say, "I finally caught up with you." It was the first woman I'd talked to, extending
a bag of apricots（杏） to me. "I don't know if your family will eat these," she added, "but they have a super deal on them."
Again I was brought back to my childhood, when I also ate apricots straight from the tree.
My mouth watered at the remembered flavor.
The old lady didn't realize that she'd given me far more than produce. With that offering
came a sense of community, a flashback to days when it was OK to talk to a stranger. She
brought back memories of summer fruits right from the tree-and a feeling that somehow
those apricots were a thank-you for sharing my time with her in a very unlikely place.
28. One reason the author likes fresh produce in grocery shop is that _
A. she enjoys observing people selecting fresh produce
B. she likes watching people tasting fresh produce
C. she produces fresh produce herself
D. she sells fresh produce herself
29. What might be the problem with the Pink Ladies noted by the old lady?
A. Their price was too high. B. Their color was too green.
C. Their taste was too sour. D. Their size was too small.
30. Why did the old lady bring a bag of apricots to the author?
A. She found the apricots were on sale in the shop.
B. She learned that the author wanted to buy apricots.
C. She wanted to send the apricots as a gift to the author.
D. She knew that the author's family liked eating apricots.
31. According to the author, what is the extra value of grocery shopping?
A. It adds flavor and color to her boring daily life.
B. It helps her to see the importance of family life.
C. It gives her a chance to learn about nutrition knowledge.
D. It brings her unexpected friendship and sweet memories.
Anger often makes us uncomfortable. When you find your anger too uncomfortable to
process, please let it go. But remember to create a healthy anger in your children is to practice creating a healthy anger in yourself. Once you're better at experiencing anger and expressing it in a healthy way, you'll be able to model a good style of anger for your kids.
Some kids deal with anger by creating a "false self': a child who is perfect for their parents. People who have developed a false self are often passive aggressive and seem shallow because they've hid away all the feelings with depth and character.
How do we keep kids from creating false selves? We need to raise them in an environment where it's safe to express feelings. Once you feel more comfortable with your own anger, you can teach your children why anger is a helpful emotion. When your kid expresses anger, help them examine what it is that has made them angry. Why did it make them angry? How did it do that? Then, you can teach them that while emotions are never wrong and are always valid, our expressions of our emotions are within our control.
People who are afraid of their own anger will never learn how to listen to what their
anger is trying to tell them. Instead of teaching our kids that their anger is wrong, that "happy
families" are never angry, or that all feelings of anger lead to violence and fear, we can teach
our children that anger is OK. Anger is natural, it is normal, and it can be experienced and
expressed in a healthy way.
32. What is the main idea of the first paragraph?
A. Anger makes us uncomfortable.
B. Anger is difficult to deal with.
C. Parents often lose their temper at home.
D. Parents should model a good anger style.
33. What would a child be like if he developed a "false self'?
A. Polite and optimistic. B. Perfect and helpful.
C. Negative and indirect. D. Rude and dishonest.
34. What's the main purpose of the last 2 paragraphs?
A. To give tips to create healthier anger.
B. To suggest ways to avoid anger.
C. To show the harm anger does to kids.
D. To stress the importance of expressing anger.
35. In which part of a website can we read the passage?
A. Food& Recipes B. Psychology & Health
C. Life &Entertainment D. School & Society
Winter running is the best way to lose winter weight. But before heading out, make sure
you have a solid plan. You don't want to come across accidents along the way. 36 Wear the Right Shoes
The right shoes will depend on the road. You want shoes that are made for the kind of
surface you run on. For example, if you are running on slippery surfaces, you want shoes with great friction（摩擦力）. 37 When trying out a pair of running shoes, check the fit, feel and ride of the shoes. These elements are important once you take your new shoes out for a run.
Warm up is an important part to keep fit. Especially if temperatures drop and your muscles are stiff from the cold! 38 It also prepares the muscles for the intense activity ahead. The cold climate won't feel as cold when you do warm ups. This is because blood flows much faster after a good warm up!
Deal with Wind
39 The key is to run into the wind and finish by running against it. This keeps icy
wind from blasting your face. To prevent any injuries or accidents, break your run into smaller parts.
40 You can use certain creams on the nose and cheeks to prevent frostbite. Don't skip your sun-block if you're running during the day. UVB（紫外线）passes through the clouds. Running for an extended period on a cloudy day will still damage the skin!
A. Don't run in the wind.
B. Running makes you warm.
C. Warming up prevents injuries.
D. It's hard to run if it's too windy.
E. Your shoes should fit very well so you don't slip.
F. Here we are giving you important tips to remember.
G. It also helps to keep the skin protected from the wind.

think you never ate a 52 tomato in L.A.." I hadn't. He 53 picked one for me.
I met all my new aunts, uncles and cousins. My cousins taught me how to do cartwheels
(恻手翻) in the big front yard. Country people have more 54 , I thought.
All the adults cried when we 55 , but I took home all the 56 of everything I'd seen. Back in L.A., my lungs hurt when I took a deep breath. 1 57 the fresh air. I dreamed of homegrown tomatoes. My country clothes seemed out of 58 , but I wore them anyway.
I was two weeks late starting 59 , but I told my teachers only that I'd been in Pennsylvania and decided to 60 all the rest to myself. If only they could have experienced everything that I did!
