Without society, there would be no language. Without language, there would be no communication between people. The appearance and application of language depend on the existence of society.

7. There are two main approaches to the study of English lexicology: synchronic and diachronic. A synchronic approach is an approach to the study of a language at one period of time, whereas a diachronic approach is an approach to the study of the change in a language that took place over a period of time. 8. Comprehensively speaking, lexicology is the branch of linguistics concerned with the study of the vocabulary of a given language. It deals with words, their origin, development, history, structure, meaning and application. In short, it is the study of the signification and application of words.

All the words in a language together constitute what is known as its vocabulary. Vocabulary is one of three elements of language: speech sounds, grammar and vocabulary. In learning a foreign language, it is very important to enlarge one's vocabulary. In order to learn and use English words correctly, those who major in the English language and literature should acquire a basic knowledge of English lexicology.
