VOCABULARY INPUT IN EFL TEXTBOOKS ROSAMª JIMÉNEZCATALÁN ROCÍOMANCEBOFRANCISCO* Universidad de La Rioja ABSTRACT. This paper reports the results obtained after analysing the vocabulary input contained in a corpus of EFL textbooks from the last year of Spanish Primary and Secondary Education. We consider the fifty most frequent words in each textbook under study as a sample of analysis and deal with their word type, word frequency, frequency rank, and the percentage they represent in the whole textbook. A comparison between the textbooks belonging to the same and different educational level is carried out, and we also attempt to assess the influence of the increase in the number of types and tokens between the end of each educational stage and regard the implications of their repetition in EFL textbooks for the acquisition of vocabulary. KEYWORDS: Vocabulary input, EFL textbook, type, token, corpus. RESUMEN. En este artículo presentamos los resultados de un análisis del input de vocabulario que contienen un corpus de libros de texto de inglés como lengua extran- jera, utilizados en el último curso de educación primaria y en el último curso de edu- cación secundaria. En nuestro análisis nos basamos en las cincuenta palabras más frecuentes en cada libro de texto e identificamos el tipo de palabra, su frecuencia, su orden y su representación en el libro de texto. Llevamos a cabo comparaciones entre los libros de texto del mismo nivel y entre los libros de texto de las dos etapas educati- vas. Asimismo, evaluamos el incremento del número de tipos y recurrencias en los libros de texto de cada etapa educativa y reflexionamos sobre las implicaciones de la repetición de los tipos y recurrencias para la adquisición del vocabulario. PALABRAS CLAVE: Input de vocabulario, libros de texto de inglés lengua extranjera, tipos, recurrencias, hábeas. 1.

The idea of a textbook as a container of information is present in most definitions found 147 RESLA 21 (2008), 147-165 in the English as a Foreign Language (EFL) literature. Also present is the idea of the textbook as an object that can be used for some purpose such as to study the subject (Cobuild Students’s Dictionary and Grammar 1994; Harmer 1991), as a resource or guide to language learning and teaching (Asher 1994; Harmer 1991), or for instruction or information (Asher 1994). The idea of the textbook as a container of vocabulary input is not as frequent but still it is possible to find that concept in the EFL field. Among the few scholars that have related textbooks and vocabulary, we find Thornbury (2002), who sees textbooks as sources for words. He claims that vocabulary input is realized in the actual content of books by means of segregated vocabulary activities, integrated text- based activities, grammar explanations and task instructions. We believe that the analysis of language teaching textbooks is a necessary st
