Vocabulary Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia


A vocabulary is a list of words.

The vocabulary a person uses is all the words that person uses. A person who is five knows 4,000 to 5,000 words.

The number of words in a language is more than that. A dictionary is a list of words, and explains the meanings of the words. One dictionary may have a list of 500,000 (half a million) words. Another dictionary may have some other words that the other dictionary does not have. When you add all the words in those dictionaries, there are about 750,000 words in English. There may be more words than that.

If there are 750,000 words, how can we talk with only 3000 words? Because, we do not need all the words. You can say most things with 3000 words.
