Acquiring Vocabulary through Reading: Effects of Frequency and Contextual Richness.
Zahar, Rick; Cobb, Tom; Spada, Nina
Canadian Modern Language Review, v57 n4 p541-72 Jun 2001
Investigated the number of times a word must be encountered in order to be learned and the types of contexts that are conducive to learning in a vocabulary acquisition study with Quebec school-aged English-as-a-Second-Language learners at five levels of proficiency. Learners read text and were tested on new vocabulary and learned and unlearned words were compared for frequency of occurrence and level of contextual support. (Author/VWL)
