This paper mainly deals with vocabulary frequency in the light of findings regarding depth of vocabulary learning, the cyclical nature of vocabulary learning, and vocabulary size and reading comprehension and concentrates on the number of Words and their cumulative Percentage of Tamil Textbooks for all the standards, namely, from first standard to fifth standard. A comparative study of Number of Words and Their Cumulative Percentage from 1st to 5th Standard Tamil Textbooks is also developed to find out what exactly is the area where concentration should be given for developing vocabulary in the students.
