Vocabulary Acquisition: Acquiring Depth of Knowledge through Network Building.
Haastrup, Kirsten; Henriksen, Birgit
International Journal of Applied Linguistics, v10 n2 p221-40 2000
Focuses on a longitudinal study of young foreign language learners' acquisition of English adjectives. A series of tasks was developed to tap lexical relations between adjectives of emotion in order to study how a particular adjective, such as "thrilled," finds its place among other near-synonomous expressions in the subfield "happy."
