Title: Modelling and Assessing Vocabulary Knowledge
Edited By: Helmut Michael Daller
James Milton
Jeanine Treffers-Daller
Series Title: Cambridge Applied Linguistics
Description:

Over the last 20 years vocabulary research has grown from a Cinderella
subject in foreign language teaching and research to a position of some
importance. Vocabulary is now considered integral to just about every
aspect of language knowledge. With this development have come standard and
widely-used tests, such as vocabulary size and lexical richness measures,
and very commonly accepted metaphors, such as the mental lexicon as a web
of words. Less widely known outside academic circles, however, is the
extensive work on learners' lexis and the utility, reliability and validity
of the tests we use to measure and investigate it. Vocabulary is a lively
and vital area of research and innovation. This volume brings together
contributions from internationally-renowned researchers in this field to
explain much of the background to study in this area. It introduces to a
wider audience the concerns, the new approaches and the most recent
developments in the field of vocabulary research and testing.
