Specification of the Model 3 General Lexicon.
The Model 3 communication skills lexicon consists of three lists of words developed by the Southwest Regional Laboratory (SWRL) for use in communication skills instruction in K-6. This report documents the procedures followed in the specification and generation of the second component of the Model 3 communication skills lexicon, the general lexicon. The general lexicon is defined as those words learned by children in K-6. Explanations are provided for minor revisions of the inclusion-exclusion criteria defined in Cronnell's "Inclusion-Exclusion Criteria for the Model 3 Communication Skills Lexicon" (1971). The unavailability of a comprehensive source of up-to-date vocabulary is discussed; the procedures employed to compile such a source are detailed. Separate lists are included for literary, fictional, and historical names; geographical names; and phrases. (Author/RB)
