Exercise 6 - Towards academic reading
One of the best things about the word enable is that it has a positive connotation. We use the word enable to make things positive instead of negative.

For example, you can focus on the negative:

A disabled person cannot walk without a cane.

Or you can use 'enable' to focus on the positive:

A cane can enable a disabled person to overcome his disability.
