Abstract

The “natural” and the “formal” acquisition of a language by a child are best seen as two ends of a continuum. The acquisition of languages involves a combination of formal instruction and natural acquisition. This paper captures an overview of select prominent tools used for measuring vocabulary diversity across first and second language contexts. The tools include type-token ratios (TTR) and the more recent automated measure of VOCD.
