Vocabulary Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia


A vocabulary is a list of words. A person's vocabulary is all the words that he or she knows. A five year old would probably know about 4,000 to 5,000 words

The vocabulary of a language is always changing. New words are invented or words change their meaning. This means that dictionaries have to be updated. Words to do with computers such as "download" are new to the English language. The new word "bling" came from hip hop. Words like "cool" have developed new meanings.

If a person wanted to find out roughly how many words they knew, they could look at a page in a dictionary and count how many of those words they knew (counting words like “sing”, “sang”, “sung”, “singing” as one word). If they multiplied that by how many pages there were in the dictionary they could estimate how many words they knew.
