Core Vocabulary Just the Facts
  • Core vocabulary consists of the most frequently used words we speak and write
  • About 80 % of what we say is comprised of about the same 300 words- across age levels, gender, culture, etc.
  • In order to communicate, access to core vocabulary in single word units is required
  • If intervention time is invested in teaching, modeling and reinforcing core vocabulary, communicators will be able to say most of what they need to say
  • VanTatenhove and Normal Language Development
