Lexical profiling: theory and practice

Chris Clack, Stuart Clayman, David Parrott
1995 Journal of functional programming  
We give a full implementation of the lexical profiling technique for a sequential, interpretive graph reduction engine, and extensions for compiled and parallel graph reduction are discussed.  ...  Lexical profiling complements implementation-specific profiling and is important because it provides a view of program activity which is largely independent of the underlying evaluation mechanism.  ...  We also thank Athena Systems Design Ltd. for their help with the parallel implementation of the profiler and Dennis Parrott for debugging the implementation and for proof-reading drafts of this paper.  ...

LEXICAL PROFILES OF COMPREHENSIBLE SECOND LANGUAGE SPEECH

Kazuya Saito, Stuart Webb, Pavel Trofimovich, Talia Isaacs
2015 Studies in Second Language Acquisition  
Subsequently, the samples were analyzed for 12 lexical variables targeting diverse domains of lexical usage (appropriateness, fluency, variation, sophistication, abstractness, and sense relations).  ...  These findings, which highlight complex associations between lexical variables and L2 comprehensibility, suggest that improving comprehensibility requires attention to multiple lexical domains of L2 performance  ...  However, scalar ratings of L2 speech are rare in vocabulary and grammar studies, where learners' oral production is mostly examined through lexical profiling and linguistic coding (e.g., VOCABULARY AND  ...
