Four papers by Anna C-S. Chang, Yuko Hoshino, Tatsuya Nakata and
Andrew Gallacher were presented in the afternoon session of the
4th Annual JALT Vocabulary SIG Vocabulary Symposium in Fukuoka,
Japan on June 20, 2015. As discussant, it is my pleasure to comment upon
each manuscript. The four studies investigate different issues related
to vocabulary learning: learning vocabulary through extensive reading,
measuring vocabulary knowledge, perceptions of vocabulary learning
through flashcards, and learning vocabulary through writing. After
commenting on each paper in turn, I shall present a few suggestions for
future research on each of these important issues.
