Much interest has been shown in children's vocabulary by educators and those concerned with the vocabulary of the basic texts and supplementary books in reading. What are the words most commonly used by children before entering first grade? Wat are the concepts that children have acquired and that have been built up for them? What is the extent of their vocabulary and at what rate does it increase? Why is it that some children find it easier to express themselves than do so many others?
