iv The Lexical Syllabus teacher has over what is being learned. The obvious conclusion to be drawn from this is that students learn a great deal directly from exposure to language through reading and listening, without the need for the teacher to impose a description on what is learnt.   Lexical chunks: Lexical chunks The principles of the Lexical Approach have [been around] since Michael Lewis published 'The Lexical Approach' [16 years ago]. [It seems, however, that] many teachers and researchers do not [have a clear idea of] what the Lexical Approach actually [looks like] [in practice]. The variables of the present study include lexical chunks learning (independent variable) and speaking fluency(dependent variable). Definitions of the terms In this study, speaking fluency indicates the number of words, regardless of repeated ones, in a T-unit.

"The Lexical Approach implies a decreased role for sentence grammar, at least until post-intermediate levels.

Michael Lewis` book The Lexical Approach, first published incaused a stir within the EFL world. It represented two things: firstly, it was part of a new theory of language - that, ``the building blocks of language are not grammar, functions, notions but lexis, that is words and word combinations`` (Richards and Rogers, ).

We recently had a query from a reader regarding the kind of language-generating concept questions we advocate. Basically, he had received some criticism after a lesson observation that the class was too teacher-centred, too input heavy and students didn’t have enough time for output (aka – practice or production).

Analysis of classroom discourse can make teachers and students of language aware of the process of communication, and can identify particular uses of nonverbal as well as verbal communication.

The lexical approach is a way of analysing and teaching language based on the idea that it is made up of lexical units rather than grammatical structures.

The units are words, chunks formed by collocations, and fixed phrases. The phrase 'Rescue attempts are being hampered by bad weather' is a chunk of language, and almost a fixed phrase/5(2). Apparently, by suggesting that his version of the Lexical Approach had anything in common with the Willis’s, or that my book in any way reflected it, was a gross misrepresentation.

The sticking point was what Michael calls ‘the frequency fallacy’, that is, the mistaken belief that word frequency equates with utility.

The results show that teacher judgement is a highly reliable tool for assessing lexical sophistication. The AG based on teacher judgements is better able to discriminate between the groups than the other operationalisations. It also works better than Vocabprofil (the French version of Laufer and Nation's () Lexical Frequency Profile).Cited by: Metrics such as lexical diversity, lexical sophistication and lexical density are commonly used in linguistic analysis (Šišková, ; Templin, ).
