This chapter is concerned with the development of a vocabulary syllabus to accompany and supplement a coursebook series. To further enhance the use of these books, we decided to initiate a project to develop an academic vocabulary syllabus. This chapter will outline the process of analyzing corpus data, deciding on lexis to cover and how to spread this across the course of study, creating support materials to facilitate learning as well as incorporating this into the wider curriculum .
