Moran 1990


Moran, Patrick R. 1990. Lexicarry: An illustrated vocabulary builder for second languages. 2nd revised edition. Brattleboro, VT: Pro Lingua Associates. 162pp.


Simple cartoon-like drawings that can be used to elicit and learn vocabulary. Drawings are organized in various sections: cartoon strips that show a series of actions in different communication situations, closely related actions, semantic fields, items found in the same settings.


This book can be very useful for eliciting vocabulary. As it stands it is most useful for languages in a Western cultural setting, but it gives ideas for how to make a book of drawings that can be used in other cultures. Particularly interesting are the ideas of using cartoon strips to illustrate dialogues in common communication situations
