1. My main current interest is in articulating and advancing a liberal arts paradigm for language education. See my recent articles on this topic. In EAP I have recently shifted my focus somewhat from testing and test preparation to vocabulary acquisition, and my volume on TOEFL Vocabulary (Goken, August 2011) features the largest corpus of TOEFL academic vocabulary yet published. I am now working on a lexicon for academic vocabulary based on the University Word List, the Academic Word List, and the EAP word list, called the GAV lexicon (Global Academic Vocabulary): it features 1,345 head words from the three most important academic vocabulary studies, in addition to important derivations and same-root antonyms that I have added to make complete word families (bringing the lexicon to 2,700 words). The lexicon also includes Japanese translations of each word, including derivations, as well as English definitions, common phrases in which the words appear, and sample sentences.
