Academic Paper


Title: Vocabulary in a Second Language: Selection, acquisition and testing
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition
Abstract: This volume consists primarily of papers that were presented at the second language vocabulary acquisition colloquium at Leiden University in March 2002 and represents a broad scope of quantitative studies by leading scholars in the field. It is organized under three different themes: "Selection," "Acquisition," and "Testing." In the introduction, the editors briefly describe the contributions and follow with several pages that illustrate how the
papers diverge on the conceptualization of central issues (e.g., the basic unit under investigation; aspects of the learning process, learning conditions, and time course of measurement; definitions of the construct of word knowledge). Finally, they add their own insightful perspectives on such issues, as well as helpful suggestions for further exploration, as a stimulus for future research.
