Vocabulary has two types of functioning in the individual that are active and passive words. The numbers of active words are less than passives. Because peoeple understand thousands of words on different subjects by listening, reading and seeing, but they can use only the words in line with their interests and the words used commonly (especially when speaking). The words people use to understand are passive, and the words that are used to express and build new structures are called active words.
