The Dolch Word List is a list of commonly used English words that was originally compiled by Edward William Dolch, PhD and published in his 1948 book, "Problems in Reading". Edward Dolch compiled this list based on children's books of the period, and selected 220 "service words" which children need to recognize in order to achieve reading fluency. Dolch excluded nouns from his main list, but did compile a separate 95-word list of nouns.
Many of the 220 words in the Dolch list, can not be "sounded out", and hence must be learned by sight. Hence the list is often referred to as "Dolch Sight Word List", and the words on it, as "Dolch Sight Words".
The Dolch word list is often used in various educational activities to teach reading, including teachers teaching their students, and parents teaching their children. Additionally, although the Dolch word list was originally devised in the context of teaching English-speaking children to read, it has also subsequently become popular in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL).
