Authors: Smallwood, Ian M.
Keywords: Vocabulary size
ESL students
Issue Date: Mar-1997
Citation: Working papers from the Language Centre : exploring language, p. 109-119.
Abstract: I describe the reasoning behind, and initial stages of, research into the development of a method of analysing and estimating the probable size of an individual's lexicon──both what are often termed the 'productive' and the 'receptive' lexicons (Nation 1982:19). I will also give an outline of future research into the analytic techniques employed.
