Abstract

Despite the recognized vocabulary challenges that confront L2 writers, there is little research on why they struggle to find the right word to express themselves in writing or how explicit instruction may help them expand their vocabulary necessary for academic writing. Therefore, this study explores the vocabulary issues that L2 writers face in writing and revision, and how Lexipedia, an online visual semantic network may help L2 writers overcome some of the challenges and learn vocabulary more effective for the purpose of writing.
