Abstract

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) form a cluster of academic subjects of increasing interest. Lists of academic vocabulary such as the 570-item Academic Word List (AWL) do not generally focus on STEM. Previously (Aist et al., 2010) we delineated four processes for developing a STEM-specific vocabulary from a general resource such as the AWL: selecting STEM words, filtering out non-STEM words, pairing some words with related non-AWL words (e.g., qualitative, quantitative), and extending some words into STEM-specific phrases (e.g., genetic factor, algebraic factor). Extension into phrases was aimed in part at recontextualizing vocabulary items to specify their STEM meaning.
