Item Type:Article
Additional Information:This article presents a new analysis of lexical richness in a bilingual setting. Its originality resides in the fact that different groups of bilinguals are compared with each other and not only with monolinguals as is often the case in studies of bilinguals. In his role of first author, Daller led the data collection and the analysis, developed a new measure of lexical richness, the Advanced Guiraud, and wrote the article, while Van Hout contributed towards the statistical analysis of the data and Treffers-Daller towards the analysis of frequency data and the collection of teacher judgements in Turkish. Daller also led the revision of the article, following comments from the reviewers of Applied Linguistics. Since the publication of this article the new measure Advanced Guiraud has been referred to by researchers working on a wide variety of languages (including Japanese and Mandarin). McCarthy and Jarvis (2007) in their in Language Testing mention Daller et al's article as one of the nine major studies on reliability of lexical diversity measures since 1993.
