may be uttered in isolation with semantic or pragmatic content (with literal or
practical meaning). This contrasts with a morpheme, which is the smallest unit
of meaning but will not necessarily stand on its own. A word may consist of a
single morpheme (for example: oh!, rock, red, quick, run, expect), or several
(rocks, redness, quickly, running, unexpected), whereas a morpheme may not be
able to stand on its own as a word (in the words just mentioned, these are -s,
-ness, -ly, -ing, un-, -ed). A complex word will typically include a root and
one or more affixes (rock-s, red-ness, quick-ly, run-ning, un-expect-ed), or
more than one root in a compound (black-board, rat-race). Words can be put
together to build larger elements of language, such as phrases (a red rock),
clauses (I threw a rock), and sentences (He threw a rock too but he missed).

Description of Vocabulary
is one of the language aspects which should be learnt.Learning vocabulary is
important because we are able to speak, write, and listennicely we have to know
vocabulary first. A person said to ‘know ‘ a word if theycan recognize its
meaning when they see it (Cameron, 2001: 75). It means that inlearning
vocabulary we have to know the meaning of it and also understand andcan use it
in sentence context.According to Red John (2000: 16) vocabulary is knowledge
involvesknowing the meanings of words and therefore the purpose of a vocabulary
test into find out whether the learners can match each word with a synonym,
adictionary – tape definition, or an equivalent word in their own language.In
learning vocabulary automatically we have to know the meaning of words it self
and can use it in sentences. Wilkins (1972: 130) states thatvocabulary learning
is learning to discriminate progressing the meaning of wordsin the target
language from the meanings of their nearest ‘equivalent’ in themother tongue.
It is also learning to make the most appropriate lexical choices for particular linguistic and situational
there are some words in a sentence and those collections of wordsinclude to the
vocabulary because vocabulary is a list or collections of wordsarranged in
alphabetical order and explained. Those words could be Noun whichis usually
used as subject or object, Verb or it is usually used as predicate in
asentence, Adverbs etc.The sentence may be further divided according to the
functions of each wordhas in the subject – predicate relationship – each of
these functions is classified asa different part of speech. They are :
is one of most important part of speech. It is arrangement with theverb helps
to form the sentence core which is essential to everycomplete sentence. It
could be the name of person, place, thing or idea.Example :
is the word which expresses an action or a help to make a statement.Example :
Mr. Herman is teachingmathematic.
The students are playing football

Material of vocabulary
learning vocabulary, there are some materials that relate withvocabulary like
word family, word classes, synonyms, antonyms that can helplearners in
comprehending vocabulary deeper.
family is a word is constructed by adding prefix and suffix in baseword or
root. In word family, we discuss about affixes. There are two affixes.They are
prefix and suffix. Here is the explanation and example both of them.
is a syllable added at the beginning of words to change their meaning. The
words of prefixes are un-, in-, dis-, mis-, re-, pre-, etc. the prefix un-and
in-, are the most common negative prefix which both mean not. Prefix mis-,means
wrong, pre-, means before, re-, means again, etc. the example words of prefixes
Unpopular Not popular
inconsistent Not consistent
Prewriting Before writing
example in sentence :
is not popular artist ( without prefix )
is unpopular artis (adding by prefix un – )
see both of them have similar meaning, but thedifference only in the “popular”
word. In the first sentence, the popular word doesnot use prefix but it used to
be + Not to express negative meaning. While in thesecond sentence, the popular
word is added by prefix un-to express negativemeaning too, the word become
is syllable added at the end of words to change their meaning or their part of
speech. The words of suffix are -ment, -ion, -ness, -less, -er/-or, -ist,etc.
the suffix –ment, -er /-or, and –ist are changed verb form becomes noun.
Theexample is act (Verb) added suffix or becomes actor (Noun), etc. while
thesuffixness is used to change adjective form becomes noun. The example is
weak (Adj) added suffix ness becomes weakness (Noun). While the suffix less
meanswithout. The example words of suffix are :
example in sentence :
plays football in the yard (as a verb )
a good football player (as a noun )
the example, we can see both of them have differences in the wordclasses. In
the first sentence, the word of play without added by suffix and theword class
is verb. It describes about what the noun does. While in the secondsentence,
the word play is added by suffix –er. So, the word class changes fromverb
(play) become noun (player). It indicates noun in the sentence.

Tool for developing vocabulary
is one of tool for developing vocabulary. It gives theinformation of the meaning
of words alphabetically. It can be used as a last resortwhen guessing from
context’s strategies fail. But, it can also be used productively, both for
generating text and as resources for vocabulary acquisition. Its
usefulnessdepends on learners being able to access the information they contain
bothspeedily and accurately. There are some key skills in using dictionary

Mastery of students’ vocabulary
learning vocabulary, people will experience development each year appropriate
with their age. According to Richard (1989: 177) for native speakersof
language, they continue to expand their vocabulary in adulthood. In social
roleand mode of discourse taking place in adulthood, in vocabulary there is
continueddevelopment beyond the childhood years with adults constantly adding
new wordsto their vocabulary through reading, occupation, and other activities.
primary period for conceptual
development, however, is early childhood Measurement of vocabulary knowledge is
difficult and it is onlyapproximately. According to Watts (1994) suggest that
the average child enterselementary school with a recognition vocabulary of
2.000 words, that at age 7 thishas reached some 7.000 words, so at age 14, the
child should be able to recognize14.000 words. According to Mackey (1965: 173)
the vocabulary of adults has been variously estimated at between 10.000 words
for non-academic adult to over 150.000 for a professional scientist. College
students are estimated to understandsome 60.000 to 100.000 words. Berry
estimates that for spoken English the average person speaking on a telephone
makes use of a vocabulary of only some2.000 words (Mackey, 1965).Meanwhile, for
Indonesian learners who learn English as one of foreignlanguage that is taught
in school, they have limited words or vocabulary that theynow or understand of
the language. So, they experience low development inexpanding the vocabularies.

amount of vocabulary anyone will get trouble in her speaking, reading,
listening, and writing. Without a shred of doubt, the writer said that the
acquisition of vocabulary would help people in gaining, understanding, and also
enhancing the process of knowledgeable transfered for a better life.
Indisputably the chances for progress or success in any kind of fields, like
computers, technology, economy, politics, tourism, and educational increase
withthe size and applications of vocabulary.
