Cornwell, Steve; Kakutani, Tomoko
Journal of Osaka Jogakuin Junior College, p97-108 March 1998
A project to develop word lists for first-year English as a second language instruction at Osaka Jogakuin Junior College (Japan) is described. The lists were drawn from high-frequency vocabulary lists, with word selection based on course unit themes and rhetorical patterns. These include: introduction/people and places; women's issues; internationalization; human rights; media and consumer society; and social responsibility. Some additional words, not based on unit content, were also included. The final selections are presented. Future steps to be taken in developing appropriate vocabulary lists are discussed.
