Abstract
Four papers by Tomoko Ishii, Emilie Masson, Atsushi Mizumoto and
Rachael Ruegg will be presented in morning session of the Second
Annual JALT Vocabulary SIG Vocabulary Symposium in Fukuoka, Japan
on July 2, 2013. As discussant, it is my pleasure to comment upon each
manuscript. These four lexical researchers originate from all over Japan:
Tokyo, Fukuoka, Osaka and Akita. The range of their lexical topics is
almost as wide: semantically related words; loanword usage difficulties;
self-efficacy and autonomy in vocabulary learning; and, lexical feedback
on writing. After commenting on each paper in turn, I shall present a few
suggestions for their future research.
