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.
