In middle-grade classrooms, definitions are the tool of choice for teaching vocabulary. Unfortunately, this approach is counterproductive. We know this from psycholinguistics and first language acquisition, as well as the linguistic theory implicit in the writing of the 20th-century philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. In this paper, I explain Wittgenstein’s views on language and language learning and apply his work to vocabulary pedagogy in the middle-grade classroom.
