Abstract

In this paper, using the corpus analysis software Range and data analysis software SPSS, the characteristics of vocabulary usage related to reading comprehension in the TEM4 and TEM8 from 2012 to 2023 (excluding 2020) are analyzed. By comparing the vocabulary usage in reading comprehension of the two exams, this paper tries to provide strategies for English majors to prepare for TEM4 and TEM8 reading comprehension in vocabulary. The research results are as follows: (1) there are more academic words in reading comprehension of TEM8 than in TEM4; (2) Pronouns, conjunctions and propositions are used more frequently than other word categories, such as modal verbs; (3) There are significant differences in the use of pronouns, conjunctions and modal verbs between TEM4 and TEM8.
