URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415699341/
Series Title: Routledge Linguistics Classics
Description:

How do we teach and learn vocabulary? How do words work in literary texts?
In this book, Ronald Carter provides the necessary basis for the further study
of modern English vocabulary with particular reference to linguistic
descriptive frameworks and educational contexts. "Vocabulary: Applied
Linguistic Perspectives" includes an introductory account of linguistic
approaches to the analysis of the modern lexicon in English and discusses
key topics such as vocabulary and language teaching, dictionaries and
lexicography and the literary, stylistic study of vocabulary.

This Routledge Linguistics Classic includes a substantial new introductory
chapter situating the book in the current digital age, covering changes and
developments in related fields from lexicography and corpus linguistics to
vocabulary testing and assessment as well as additional new references.

"Vocabulary: Applied Linguistic Perspectives" has been widely praised since
first publication for the breadth, depth and clarity of its approach and is a key
text for postgraduate students and researchers studying vocabulary within the
fields of English Language, Applied Linguistics and Education.
