"It focuses on lexical availability, a common concern of English and Spanish applied linguists nowadays. ... a single volume or a collection of articles on lexical availability was not available in the market prior to the appearance of this volume. Therefore, this single volume would serve a newcomer to the field. ... the book is not only recommended to Spanish and English FL teachers and researchers, but also to those researchers who know other under-investigated languages." (Is'haaq Akbarian, IJES International Journal of English Studies, Vol. 15 (2), 2015)
"The studies presented in this volume offer the reader findings and insights from studies conducted among learners with different mother tongues, who are learning English or Spanish as their second or third language in different countries ... . the authors suggest some of the innovations that could be interesting for further studies and disciplines, such as psycholinguistics or vocabulary testing, from which the results of lexical availability investigations could be studied." (Felipe Jimenez Berrio, Spanish in Context, Vol. 12 (1), 2015)"This book compiles two different research areas: lexical availability studies, and vocabulary research in second or foreign languages. ... it offers an excellent (English-language) resource for any researcher/ teacher wanting to know more about the lexical availability of his/her learners' receptive and productive lexical competence. ... I consider the volume a fascinating resource and one that offers immense potential in exploring lexical availability either in isolation or in combination with vocabulary tests." (Jonathan Clenton, The Linguist List, February, 2014)
