Greidanus, Tine; Nienhuis, Lydius
Modern Language Journal, v85 n4 p567-77 Win 2001
Examined the development of the word knowledge of two groups of advanced learners of French as a second language by means of a slightly revised version of a particular test format. Studied the type of distractor most suited to the participants, distinguished the role of three types of associations, and linked qualitative aspects of word knowledge to quantitative aspects by distinguishing five frequency ranges.
