Query:   Hello, everyone.

Because educators at all levels are currently concerned with developing academic vocabulary in their students, I'm interested in finding out the vocabulary the students are exposed to in their textbooks. I'd like to research the vocabulary patterns (collocations, lexical phrases, lexical bundles) found in subject area textbooks at the elementary and high school levels. Does anyone know of work currently being done in this area? Biber and Conrad in particular, I know, have researched the vocabulary of university and professional texts, but I know of no work being done in the K-12 (kindergarten through 12th grade) level. Any help you can give would be greatly apprecitated. Yours,

Stacia Levy
