  • 1. VOCABULARY LISTPreliminary English Test (PET)Preliminary English Test for Schools (PETfS)PET Vocabulary List©UCLES 2009
  • 2. Introduction to the PET Vocabulary ListThe PET Vocabulary List gives teachers a guide to the vocabulary needed when preparingstudents for the PET and PET for Schools examinations.Background to the ListThe PET Vocabulary List was originally developed by Cambridge ESOL in consultationwith external consultants to guide item writers who produce materials for the PETexamination. It includes vocabulary from the Council of Europe’s Threshold (1990)specification and other vocabulary which corpus evidence shows is high-frequency.The list covers vocabulary appropriate to this level of English and includes receptivevocabulary (words that the candidate is expected to understand but which is not the focusof a question) and productive vocabulary (words that the candidate needs to know toanswer a question).The list does not provide an exhaustive list of all words which appear on the PET and PETfor Schools question papers and candidates should not confine their study of vocabulary tothe list alone.How the List is UpdatedThe vocabulary of English changes over time, with words being added and other wordsfalling into disuse. In order to maintain its currency, the PET Vocabulary List is updated onan annual basis by the addition and removal of words, using a corpus-based approach.Suggested additions to the list are collated and the frequency of these words is obtainedby reference to established corpora (electronic databases). The corpora in questionrepresent receptive and productive language in general contexts. The main corpora usedfor the validation of the PET Vocabulary List are:• the Cambridge Learner Corpus (CLC), which includes over 20 million words of written learner English at six levels;• the British National Corpus (BNC), which includes 100 million words of written and spoken native speaker data.Organisation of the List • Word setsSome categories of words that a learner at this level might be expected to know are notincluded in the alphabetical list but are listed separately. Words formed with commonaffixes, some compounds and words from some common word sets, e.g. days of the week,are described below and in Appendix 1. Although some ‘grammar words’ (pronouns,modals, etc.) are included, the ‘Language Specification’ section of the PET and PET forSchools Handbook (available from from should be consulted fora more complete listing. • ExemplificationExample phrases and sentences showing how words might be used are given only wherewords with different meanings need to be constrained, e.g. the use of case is limited to‘suitcase’: candidates are not expected to know other meanings, such as ‘a legal case’. Page 2
  • 3. • Prefixes and SuffixesA list of possible prefixes and suffixes is provided in Appendix 2, and these may becombined with the vocabulary items in the list as appropriate. Words with an affix which isnot included in the appendix are listed separately in the alphabetical list. • Compound WordsCompound words are not included in the list where both individual words are present andthe meaning of the compound is literal and transparent, e.g. coursebook, schoolboy,shoemaker, underwater. A similar approach has been adopted with two-word andhyphenated compounds, for example coffee bar, leisure centre, home-made, open-air. • Multi-word VerbsMulti-word verbs are not included in the list if they have a literal meaning and arecomposed of verbs and particles already in the list. Examples of ‘literal’ multi-word verbsare come into, sit down, as in ‘Why not come into the kitchen and sit down?’ If the meaningof the verb is not transparent, e.g. put through, get along, then the verb is listed and anexample of usage given. • Topic ListsIn Appendix 3, words have been grouped together under common PET themes, such as‘House and Home’, ‘Sport’, and ‘Food and Drink’ etc.Unsuitable TopicsCambridge ESOL examinations must not contain anything that might offend or upsetcandidates, potentially affect their performance or distract them during the examination. Anumber of ‘sensitive’ topics are considered unsuitable for use in PET, for example, warand politics, and vocabulary relating to these is not included in the PET Vocabulary List.Personal VocabularyThe content of the PET Vocabulary List is general in nature and is unlikely to covercompletely the productive vocabulary that may be required by all candidates. Candidatesshould know the specific lexis they will need to describe themselves and their lives, forexample, work, hobbies, likes and dislikes.AbbreviationsAbbreviations used in the PET Vocabulary List are:abbrev abbreviation or acronym n nounadj adjective phr v phrasal verbadv adverb pl pluralAm Eng American English prep prepositionBr Eng British English prep phr prepositional phraseconj conjunction pron pronoundet determiner sing singularexclam exclamation v verbint interjectionSummary of Points to be noted • The list does not include every word that may appear on a PET paper. • The list covers receptive and productive vocabulary. • The list is updated every year.
