Abstract:

Reflecting growth in research interest in second language vocabulary over the
past 30 years, this edited volume explores the current themes and possible
future directions in second language vocabulary research. The collection
brings together review papers and quantitative studies, and considers
vocabulary in the contexts of teaching, learning and assessment. Key
themes explored in the volume include multidimensionality of vocabulary
knowledge, the nature of word learnability, the interface between receptive
vocabulary knowledge and productive vocabulary use, the partial-to-precise
continuum of vocabulary knowledge, conditions favouring vocabulary learning
and use, and the use of corpora to develop word lists to inform second
language teaching. The themes presented in this volume reflect current
thinking and research avenues at the interface between research enquiry and
second language teaching practice.
