Special issue of Language Teaching Research

What are the most frequent phrasal verbs and their most frequent meaning senses?  What vocabulary is learned through reading extensively with audio support?  What effect does the quality of the encounter with new words, quality of the task and degree of knowledge have on vocabulary learning? What is the new listening vocabulary levels test and how can it be used by teachers and learners?  A new edited special issue of Language Teaching Research, edited by Averil Coxhead, is now available at http://ltr.sagepub.com/content/current.  Articles in the special issue address these kinds of pedagogically-motivated research questions and more!  The issue is dedicated to Emeritus Professor Paul Nation, a leading researcher in vocabulary studies at Victoria University of Wellington.
