On Depth of Word Knowledge : Under the Hood Here at Vocabulary.com, we take the concept of word mastery seriously. Which means that when you're playing the Challenge, we don't stop sending you questions on a word until you're comfortable with every sense of its meaning, in multiple, often confusing context environments pulled from real-world texts. Why are we so thorough? As we were recently reminded by a recent study by vocabulary education researchers on the relationship between depth of student word knowledge and reading comprehension success, "comprehension involves not just reading words and knowing what they mean but how they are connected in language to make meaning." In other words, it's not always how many words you know, it's how well you know the ones you do that helps you understand them when you speak, read, listen, and think.
