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.
