    Each of us has several vocabularies. Read the first paragraph here: http://www.readinga-z.com/research/vocabulary.html

    I'm generalizing here, but overall these things seem to be true:

    Our listening and reading vocabularies are usually the largest. We can understand words in context, even though we may not completely understand every single word we hear or read.

    Our speaking vocabulary is next largest, and our writing vocabulary is the smallest. That is, we use words we are confident of in our writing.
