'The practice-to-theory approach, as presented here, should be greatly appreciated by both experienced vocabulary teachers and teachers in training. Practitioners will find this very readable text to contain not only insightfully selected topics and suggestions, but very accessible theoretical explanations.' - Cheryl Zimmerman, California State University, Fullerton, USA 'Taking a multiple-perspective approach, Gardner shows the linguistic, psychological and pedagogical complexity of learning and retaining many thousands of words. This book offers obligatory, challenging, but at the same time highly accessible and practical information for L2 teachers and curriculum designers (and for teacher-researchers!), native and nonnative speakers of English. I wish I had had this book at my disposal when I began my career as L2 instructor and researcher of L2 acquisition.' - Jan Hulstijn, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands 'Tasks provide practical experience and analysis of the concepts introduced in the book. Through the examples, corpus-based data, and software, Tasks help with processing and understanding vocabulary issues more deeply.' - Is'haaq Akbarian, University of Qom, Iran 'By implementing frequency lists that include a range of registers (academic, children's books, etc.) and span a considerable length of time (e.g. the Dolch list was compiled in 1936), the author brings into focus the need for updating frequency data while, simultaneously, highlighting the stability of certain words through time. From a pedagogical perspective, the potential implementations of frequency list data such as that of the CCL are limitless, and the ample online resources included in various parts of this book greatly contribute to this end (e.g. Quizlet, Compleat Lexical Tutor).' - Filio Chasioti, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, The LINGUIST List
