A combination of both.

I'm more likely to encounter difficult words in books than in speech, so I'd say books.

Shouldn't it be, "Have you LEARNED," as opposed to, "Have you LEARNT."

I dunno, "learnt" just doen't sound right here.

I've learned more vocabulary from books, definitely.
18 yrs ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 7:01:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
Books...when I was little I read like a fiend...still do, actually.

I learned English at school but I think a lot of my additional vocabulary actually came from song lyrics.
18 yrs ago - Monday 7/12/04 - 7:34:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
A combination.

It will always be speech, because humans naturally speak more than they read during their lifetime. Unless they are severly secluded, abnormal, overachieving individuals.

is "learnt" a word?! ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! you confused me. great going!
18 yrs ago - Wednesday 7/14/04 - 1:32:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Speech...I rarely read at all.
18 yrs ago - Friday 7/16/04 - 5:24:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
Of course learnt is a word.

But yes lucas, I think you're right Sorry!

Both
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 8/23/04 - 5:02:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
neither i learned from video games
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 12/24/04 - 10:52:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
video games
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/20/05 - 12:34:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
books
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/20/05 - 12:42:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Songs. My vocabulary is expanded by the songs I listen too.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/20/05 - 12:44:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
I read a lot of stuff, so I would have to say books.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/27/05 - 10:48:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say speech...
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/27/05 - 11:02:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
Mostly from books.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/27/05 - 11:40:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
For me, I would have to a little of both.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Sunday 2/27/05 - 11:46:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Both, but I'd say I've learned more from books than speech.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Saturday 3/12/05 - 10:59:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
Almost all of them from speech. People might learn hard words from books but who learns most of the words they know from books? you have to be able to talk well before you can read.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 3/18/05 - 8:52:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
How come the mods didn't pick up on learnt ?
Speech and video game text for sure.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 4/25/05 - 10:50:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
"Learnt"...We all know where you learned yours.
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 4/25/05 - 10:52:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
My brain can't hold a lot of vocabulary.
But I really do learn it everywhere.
It just falls out of my brain rather quickly.
I'm stuck with a 7th grade vocabulary.
Forever.
