Vocabulary prediction is a task that aims to predict the entire vocabulary of language learners from small size vocabulary tests (COLING 2012, EMNLP 2014). Possible applications are low-cost selection of good translators (IJCAI 2016), and reading support for language learners (ACM TIST 2013, IUI 2010).
