AWL (Academic Word List)

The Academic Word List (AWL) is a compilation of words that are commonly used in academic texts across various disciplines. Developed by Averil Coxhead, the AWL consists of 570 word families that are essential for students to understand and use in academic contexts. In language learning, the AWL is a valuable resource for teaching vocabulary that will help learners succeed in academic settings, enhancing their reading comprehension and writing skills in scholarly environments.
