FREQUENCY AND VOCABULARY TYPES

Syarifuddin Syarifuddin

Abstract


Vocabulary is a fundamental component of language use, and research repeatedly suggests the dominance of vocabulary knowledge over four language abilities such as listening, reading, speaking and writing. For many learners, vocabulary growth is of their major and even lasting concern in learning a second language. Vocabulary knowledge is not only about knowing enough words but more importantly also about knowing enough of the right words i.e. the words that the learners may often meet and use in typical discourse they involve. In relation to this, teachers as well as material writers are required to do a cost-benefit analysis to select what vocabulary deserves inclusion and should get most attention in the language program. Using this matter as a starting point, this article aims to present vocabulary types according to frequency levels and to overview the nature of each type and how each should be dealt with in the language program.
