Lexicon - What is lexicon vs vocabulary?


Although dictionaries are more commonly linked with ancient languages or the specialized vocabulary of certain authors or fields of study, they both refer to collections of words. In baseball, terms such as "Baltimore chop," "go-ahead run," and "no-hitter" have entered the lexicon. Viewing lexicons as specialized dictionaries is the simplest approach to understanding them.
