This chapter explores the longitudinal development of the depth of vocabulary knowledge as it relates to specific words in the lexicon. The chapter presents a new research study that investigated the longitudinal changes in depth of vocabulary knowledge among pre-intermediate learners. The findings indicate that when data are collected at relatively long intervals, linear patterns of development can be observed in terms of the overall depth of word knowledge in the case of nouns and adjectives, but for verbs the changes point toward more fluctuation and a less steady rate of progress. Based on the results of the study, a potential order for the development of word knowledge types is proposed.

Keywords:   depth of vocabulary knowledge, pre-intermediate learners, order for development, word knowledge types, longitudinal changes
