Abstract


THE VOCABULARY SIZE OF TEACHER CANDIDATES AND THEIR SUCCESS IN MAJOR AREA COURSES
One of the foremost indicators of linguistic proficiency is attributable to target vocabulary competence when the issue is foreign language education. With this in mind, great extent of ESP instruction, as an instance, focuses on and deals with learning new words. Lexical items which are “learned” for a specific purpose, nevertheless, do not necessarily constitute vocabulary “known”. The items that are taken in mental lexicon by learners of a target language for a specific purpose can influence not only their proficiency in that language, but also their success in their field. That can be the case even for language teacher candidates as well. This current study initially aims at investigating whether there is a correlation between the vocabulary sizes of teacher candidates at an ELT department in Turkey and their academic success in accordance with their exam grades on major area courses.
