For Avaz versions 4.0 and above
Avaz uses the Pragmatic vocabulary. It offers three graded vocabulary sets that are pragmatically organized.
Note: Pragmatic vocabulary is not present in Avaz India, Avaz Dansk and Avaz Australia. See note at the end of the page for these apps*.
The vocabulary encourages and facilitates a wide range of pragmatic communication and expression - e.g. greetings, expressing an opinion, asking a question, giving a response, commenting, protesting, refusing / rejecting, labeling, making a joke, agreeing / disagreeing, clarifying, instructing, expressing feelings etc.
The organization hierarchy makes it easy to implement the above pragmatics while being used by the parent as well as the child. The vocabulary progression through the levels ensures consistent word locations, without disrupting the motor pattern that has already been learnt by the child.
The vocabulary is organized as Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.
Level 1 vocabulary - has around 500 words and is optimized for 15 pictures per screen.
Level 2 vocabulary - has around 2000 words and is optimized for 24 pictures per screen.
Note that it is recommended to start with Level 3 vocabulary, even for a beginner. This gives him the opportunity to explore and express himself through a wider set of vocabulary. If the child finds it difficult to deal with, then you can change it to a lower level of vocabulary.
