NONFICTION: “Mountain of Fire,” pages 4-9 February 2016 ®
Vocabulary: “Mountain of Fire” 1. c atastrophic (cat-uh-STROF-ik) adjective; If you say that something is catastrophic, you mean that it is extremely harmful. (Catastrophic is the adjective form of the word catastrophe, which means “disaster.”) Severe damage caused by a natural disaster might be called catastrophic. A simple wrong turn could also be called catastrophic, though, if it results in something horrible happening—like driving off a cliff. An injury might be called catastrophic if it is very serious.
2. d ebris (duh-BREE) noun; Debris is the pieces of something that are left after it has been broken or destroyed. Debris can also mean trash that is scattered around. So you might find a lot of debris on the street after a powerful storm, and you also might find debris on the street after a neighborhood party.
3. evacuate (ih-VAK-yoo-eyt) verb; To evacuate is to leave a place because it is unsafe. For example, people evacuate a building if it is on fire.
4. g lacial (GLEY-shuhl) adjective; If you say that something is glacial, you mean that it is from a glacier (GLEY-sher) or like a glacier. And what is a glacier? It’s a giant piece of ice—possibly many miles long—that moves extremely slowly. (Most glaciers are located near the North and South Poles.) So glacial ice is ice from a glacier. Glacial can also mean very cold or very slow.
5. i ce age (AHYS eyj) noun; Over the course of history, Earth has experienced some long periods when it was very cold and glaciers covered a large part of the planet. These periods are called ice ages.
6. l andslide (LAND-slahyd) noun; A landslide is when a large quantity of rocks and dirt suddenly slides down a mountainside. The word landslide is also used to talk about elections: If you say that someone wins by a landslide, you mean that he or she won by a lot—that he or she got way more votes than anyone else.
7. m olten (MOHL-tihn) adjective; When something solid gets so hot that it melts and becomes a liquid, it is molten.
