Modelling and Assessing Vocabulary Knowledge

Helmut Daller, James Milton, Jeanine Treffers-Daller

Over the past two decades, research into vocabulary has become an issue of some importance, and vocabulary is now considered integral to most aspects of language learning and knowledge. While a number of tests and concepts have become commonplace, there is less awareness of the extensive work on learners' lexis and the application, reliability and validity of tests used to measure and analyse it. This volume comprises contributions from well-known researchers in this field, and introduces to a wider audience the concerns, the new approaches and the most recent developments in the field of vocabulary research and testing. Topics include issues in assessing vocabulary knowledge, lexical richness in EFL learners, and approaches to oral vocabulary assessment. Adapted from publisher's description.
