Recent Research on Measuring Receptive and Productive Vocabulary
Tran, Thu Hoang
Online Submission
This paper is concerned with research in measuring receptive and productive vocabulary knowledge in second language (L2) learning, including English as a second language (ESL) learning and English as a foreign language (EFL) learning. The paper will begin with a brief introduction to the role of vocabulary in language learning, and then an overview of terminology in vocabulary knowledge and size will be presented. Five most recent studies on receptive and productive vocabulary knowledge will be discussed together with some other studies that partially address the issue of receptive and productive vocabulary knowledge. The instruments employed to research the topic of receptive and productive vocabulary will be reviewed with the scoring methods used in each study. In addition, the subjects of the studies will be pointed out, and the results of the studies will be briefly discussed. Finally, some pedagogical implications will be suggested. It is hoped that ESL and EFL teachers may find the results in this line of research useful for their vocabulary instruction.
