Vocabulary has been one of the growth areas of language study over the past three decades. In the second edition of this definitive study, Ronald Carter updates progress in key areas of language description and applied linguistics. This new edition includes new material on the relationship between vocabulary, grammar and discourse and the implications of new insights into vocabulary for the study of speech and writing in English. It also has updated chapters on vocabulary and language teaching, dictionaries and lexicography, and the literary study of vocabulary.
Vocabulary: Applied Linguistic Perspectives has been widely praised since first publication for the breadth, depth and clarity of its approach. This new edition builds upon these foundations and develops further understanding of this key area of applied linguistics.
