A Tryout of Procedures for Developing a Technical Lexicon.
Cronnell, Bruce; Rhode, Mary
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 used for developing a technical lexicon for subject areas in kindergarten and the elementary grades. To develop a music lexicon, five sources (a general lexicon, two music dictionaries, and two elementary music series) were selected and perused for music terminology by two SWRL staff members. Master lists for each source were compiled and submitted to SWRL music experts for evaluation. It was found that the procedures followed were generally appropriate for developing a lexicon. The results of the compilation and evaluation are discussed in this paper. Appendixes include instructions for evaluators, lists compiled from each source, and a tentative music lexicon. (JM)
