V2 Vocabulary Building Dictionary



Definition: a system or method of doing, teaching, or studying something

Synonyms: system, method, procedure, process, tactic, style


Tips: Methodology is really a more sophisticated way of saying "method" or "process." Usually, when you add the suffix -ology it means "the study of" (e.g. biology). Think of methodology as the study of methods and procedures, and from this study, you develop methods and procedures for successfully completing tasks, jobs, or projects.
