Whenever reading a science fiction or fantasy novel, one must become familiar with new terminology that explains concepts or ideas that are not a part of the "real" world. In the case of The Sorceress, much of the setting may seem familiar to the reader (i.e. there are woods, mountains, rivers, oceans, etc), though there are new ideas and terms to learn. Discuss the following: 1. Find five terms that are a part of the world of The Sorceress that occur in the "real" world but are used differently in The Sorceress. 2. Define the words as used in in The Sorceress world and compare those five words as to how they are currently used in the American English language. 3. There are ways of learning about a new world or time when reading a science fiction or fantasy novel. Discuss the ways you were able to understand the world of The Sorceress. Did you have to look up any words? What does it mean to learn a word through its context? Do you have to do that in The Sorceress? What word(s)? 4. Were there any words you never really understood from The Sorceress? Which ones?
