Creating a New List

There are a number of ways to make vocabulary lists on Vocabulary.com:

Create a Vocabulary List from a list of words: 

If you already have a list of words, start by clicking the "Start a New List" button on the Vocabulary List home page.  

Paste or type your list into the text box. Put each word on a separate line, or place commas between words. Click the "Next Step" button.

Give your list a title and an optional description.

Click the "Practice" button to start a practice session on the list. Or, if you are a teacher, click the "assignment" tab to assign practice, a spelling bee or a quiz to your class.

Create a Vocabulary List from any text:

Start by clicking the "Start a New List" button on the Vocabulary List home page.  

Paste text from any source into the text box — say, an article you are reading, or even a whole book (you can paste up to 100 pages).  Press the "Next Step" button.

We'll instantly analyze the text and grab all the relevant vocabulary words from the text.  These are words that we determine are necessary to fully understand the meaning of the text.  

We'll highlight the top 10, but you can include (or exclude) as many as you like.

Optionally, click the gear icon at the top right to sort or filter the list. 

Click the Practice button to start a practice session on the list. Or, if you are a teacher, click the "assign this list" button to assign them to one or more of your classes.
