Abstract [en]
First of all the present study aims to determine whether gender differences exist in the knowledge of English vocabulary among Swedish pupils in the fifth, the seventh and the ninth grade. If this is the case, the second aim is to analyse what characterises these differences. Furthermore, the study investigates possible connections between test results and gender on the one hand, and on the other, attitudes towards English studies and vocabulary learning, preferred vocabulary learning situations, word classes and grades. 300 pupils have taken part in the study. One vocabulary test of 56 words has been constructed for each of the three levels. In addition to the actual test, the pupils have answered a questionnaire on attitudes and learning of words. Also ten teachers of English have answered a questionnaire. In contrast to earlier national and international research the major result of the present study is that boys generally and young boys particularly have a better English vocabulary than girls. Moreover, several connections are found between gender and attitudes towards English studies, between gender and preferred learning situations, and finally, between gender and grades.
