Abstract
This paper analyzes the features of vocabulary use in relation to reading comprehension in Test for English Majors-Band 4 and Band 8 (TEM-4 and TEM-8 hereafter) from 2000 to 2014 by using corpus analysis software RANGE and data analysis software SPSS 19. The vocabulary use features are as follows: (1) pronouns, conjunctions and propositions are used more frequently than other word categories, such as modal auxiliaries; (2) there is a significant difference between conjunctions, modal auxiliaries and notional verbs between TEM-4 and TEM-8; (3) the topic scope of reading comprehension in TEM-8 is much wider than in TEM-4.
