Technical Vocabulary in Specialised Texts.
Chung, Teresa Mihwa; Nation, Paul
Reading in a Foreign Language, v15 n2 Oct 2003
Describes two studies of technical vocabulary, one using an anatomy text and the other an applied linguistics text. Technical vocabulary was found by rating words in the texts on a four-step scale. Found that technical vocabulary made up a very substantial proportion of both the different words and the running words in texts. (Author/VWL)
