All children in society must be taught part of these words in the schools, although many will be learned outside of school. Two per cent of all the children have been called the educable mentally retarded, and special help is needed to master a few of that long list of words.
The purpose of the study was, first, to bring together some of the best-known techniques, methods, and procedures found in the literature used to increase vocabulary; and, second, to take a perspective view of those methods and techniques, to explore similarities and differences, and to weigh objectively one method against the other.
The study was limited to five different recognized techniques found in the literature that have been used to build a vocabulary. These are the sight method, direct or modified phonics, phonic method, kinesthetic method, and experience method.
