Abstract

This paper describes an easy-to-administer test of productive vocabulary. The test requires Ss to produce a set of word association responses to a small set of stimulus words. The stimulus words are chosen so that with native speaker Ss they typically generate a wide range of responses, and a high proportion of low frequency responses. The paper argues that a test of this sort might tap the extent of non-native speakers' productive vocabulary more effectively than some other tests in current use.
