Subject: Defining Word for English

Dear Friends,

I am looking for a current reference discussing how difficult or
arbitrary it is to define word, with a particular focus on
English. Does anyone know of a fairly current journal article or book
that talks about this?

thanks,

Jerry

Does anyone know of any reliable research showing the effect of class size on 
achievement in the second-language classroom?

Any leads would be appreciated.
