Message from SIG Chair

Welcome to the AERA Vocabulary SIG!

I am honored to serve as Chair of the SIG this year. Whether you have an interest or passion for learning more about vocabulary or for sharing your vocabulary expertise with others, this is SIG is for you. This SIG is committed to communicating and networking about vocabulary: How it develops and how to foster it.

There are many ways to get involved in the Vocabulary SIG, including submitting proposals to the SIG for AERA annual meetings, nominating a colleague or student for one of our awards, supporting SIG efforts by volunteering to serve on a committee, or simply by showing your commitment to vocabulary research by being a member.

If you, or one of your graduate students, are conducting research on vocabulary, I hope you will consider sending your proposal for a paper or symposium session to the SIG. The number of paper sessions AERA permits for the SIG is determined by the number of papers submitted, so encouraging submissions is very important.

In addition to sponsoring events at the annual meeting, we send out a quarterly newsletter that compiles a list of vocabulary-related publications by members. This is a great way to keep up-to-date on the latest vocabulary research. Please email me or our newsletter editor, Blythe Anderson (andersb@msu.edu), to share your latest publications.

As Chair of the Vocabulary SIG, I look forward to seeing you at the annual meeting. In the meantime, feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have. I hope you will help us to grow the Vocabulary SIG this year.
