Vocabulary SIG

Published: Mon, 11/07/2011 - 8:23pm

The Vocabulary Special Interest Group (Vocab SIG) provides a forum for focused research and discussion in specific regard to vocabulary acquisition. We offer both teachers and researchers a place to connect regarding how learners improve vocabulary knowledge, how to test their knowledge, and how these theoretical aspects connect to classroom practice.
The Vocabulary SIG aims to be a driving force for both current and future research in the field of how vocabulary can be taught, learned, and tested in an increasingly global context.
The Vocabulary SIG holds an annual symposium-style event where the latest research and pedagogical innovations in the field of second language vocabulary acquisition are discussed. This event allows invited speakers and discussants from the field to present new work and keeps the group on the cusp of vocabulary teaching and learning studies.
