En Route (adj./adv.)

Here’s a context clues worksheet on en route. Merriam-Webster says it can be used as both an adjective and an adverb, but I’ve only used it as an adverb, and I cannot, off the top of my head, think of how it might be used as an attributive adjective (The en route barbarian checked his iron-age technology, maybe?), though it makes sense (I am en route) as a predicate. It’s probably worth taking a look a this definition from Merriam-Webster’s website, which provides a couple of useful definitions, as well as noting that en route, in terms of popularity, is in the top ten percent of words.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
