On Size of the Lexical Domain for Primary Education.
Follettie, Joseph F.
The specification of a lexicon, centering on the referential base concept and compiled for primary education, is explored in this paper. Classification of a sample of 518 entries from a desk dictionary into one of five categories is discussed, and analysis of the 266 entries in the fourth category (base concept-naming entries) according to the base word and its associated entries is illustrated in a table.
