Learning Vocabulary in Lexical Sets: Dangers and Guidelines.
Nation, Paul
TESOL Journal, v9 n2 p6-10 Sum 2000
Examines research on learning related vocabulary, such as lexical sets, a unit of vocabulary or specific items sharing certain formal or semantic features. This research shows that learning related words at the same time makes learning them more difficult and suggests that this difficulty can be avoided if related words are learned separately.
