s Researchers estimate that typically developing native speakers of English have a repertoire of approximately 4,0005,000 English words by age 8. They continue to acquire approximately 1,000 more words each year they are in elementary school (Linfors, 1987; Nagy, 1988). By age 13 a typically developing native speaker of English will have approx. 9,00010,000 words in their vocabulary.
