Rationale and Description of "Basic Elementary Reading Vocabularies."
Harris, Albert J.
The Harris-Jacobson Basic Elementary Reading vocabularies contain 7,613 words found to be basic in 14 series of textbooks for grades 1 through 6. They include a core list, an additional list, a technical vocabulary, and a total alphabetical list. Comparisons with the Dale list and the Botel list show very high degrees of overlapping with the appropriate part of the Harris-Jacobson list. Comparisons have also been made with the Taylor list, the Kucera-Francis list, and the American Heritage list. Despite marked differences in the techniques used in compiling some of these lists, there is substantial agreement about the words that are basic for reading in the elementray school. References are included. (Author/AW)
