Default context is important

dear, you are putting great efforts by posting important vocabulary from dawn newspaper, but i thing that it would not help anybody as all this is without context and is tantamount to pasting dictionary over here, so if context is provided , then it would be easy to remember them all.
you need to provide time and place the words are used in, then it would be quite meaningful for everybody.

Providing context with every word is difficult and time consuming. sentences with these words can be provided but it will make it more complicated. I think Giving a look to these word will build your vocabulary.
