SIFC Run for Words Word Contest 2016!

英文到底有多少单词呀?韦氏词典上是四十五万个,牛津词典上五十万个,英国伯明汉大学曾编纂的单词集有两千万个。学习英语的小伙伴你害怕了吗?这就是英语的特点,单词量巨大。

语言学家Terrel认为,只要掌握了足够的词汇,即使没有多少语法知识,外语学习者也能较好理解外语和用外语进行表达。

语言学家Wilkins有一句经典名言:“没有语法只能传达很少的信息,没有词汇则什么也无法传达。”

 

美国语言学家Diller作过一个统计:如果我们认识25个单词,平均每一页上我们就认识23%的单词;如果我们认识135个单词,该百分比就达到50%;2500个单词量相应于78%;5000个单词量相应于86%;10000个单词量相应于92%。他同时认为,外语学习者要想比较顺利阅读中等难度的文章,10000个词汇量是最基本的条件。

 

语言学家Laufer从阅读理解的角度研究后发现:认识5000个单词,阅读理解正确率为56% 认识6400个单词,该百分比为63%;认识9000个单词,该百分比大约是70%。5000词汇量是个阅读所需词汇量的下限。同样在写作、口语、听力等方面也大致如此。


这一切都表明了,在英语学习中,单词真的很重要!

说了这么多,其实我想说的是——
