"...this book provides a solid introduction to vocabulary and semantics for teachers and teacher trainers involved in language education...this text rates as one of the best attempts in print of providing a useful structure for the teaching of vocabulary and semantic systems. In the process of accomplishing this feat, the book also reaffirms the centrality of lexical development in the language learning matrix." Studies in Second Language Aquisition "This book can help current and future teachers better understand the complexity of vocabulary acquisition." Toshiyo Nabei, Penn TESOL East
