Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate to what extent vocabulary uptake occurs in a group discussion. The subjects in this study are six interlocutors who are from faculty of education. The methodology used in this study is recording and taking field notes of the group discussion. The data in this study have been analysed based on Lyster and Ranta (1997) Error Correction Model. The findings of this study illustrate that vocabulary uptake does occurs in group discussion. Besides that, vocabulary uptake occurs most from the noun word class. Meanwhile the most frequent interactional pattern which promotes uptake in a group discussion is recast. Through this study, it could be concluded that group discussion does allow vocabulary uptake to occur and it should be conducted more often among low proficiency students.
