Product description

The study of vocabulary is a flourishing area in applied linguistics and language teaching, which is creating a need for new approaches to vocabulary assessment. This volume presents a framework that expands the traditional concept of a vocabulary test to cover a range of procedures for assessing the vocabulary knowledge of second language learners. These procedures can be useful for addressing practical assessment needs, as well as providing tools for conducting research into the lexical dimensions of language.

Key features

  • Comprehensively reviews research related to vocabulary assessment in the fields of second language acquisition and language testing.
  • Includes a discussion of new directions for vocabulary assessment, and in particular the contribution of computerised corpus analysis.
  • Takes a systematic approach to the design of vocabulary tests.
