Abstract [en]

To master English to such a degree that you can read a wide variety of English texts without having to look certain words up in a dictionary requires a huge vocabulary. Estimates are that you will need to understand 8000 – 9000 word families to reach that goal. The aim of this study was to investigate what opportunities for reaching such a goal there are to be found in the explicit vocabulary instructions found in two textbooks written for Swedish upper-secondary school. Another point of study was how these textbook instructions are related to research in fields relevant to L2 vocabulary acquisition. It was found that there is a good variety in textbook instructions concerning issues such as semantic groups, formulaic sequences and word formation. However, there are big differences between the two textbooks that were studied regarding this. Furthermore, it was found that both textbooks, although having different approaches to teaching vocabulary, rest their reasoning upon research.
