Vocabulary Development 

by Steven A. Stahl 

January 1999 
isbn 1-57129-0172-9 $9.95 sc 

In this book, Steven Stahl brings together the classic and new views on vocabulary and reading comprehension. He evaluates those views from the standpoint of research and practice, and suggests those practices that have the most beneficial effects in the classrooms and clinics of today.

Topics covered by the chapters include such important issues as the relationship between vocabulary knowledge and reading comprehension; how many words do people know; how do people learn words from context and what does it mean to "know" a word. The format of each chapter is to present the questions and how it is addressed in the research literature, and then how the findings can best be used in classroom practice, closely interweaving new findings with work with students.
