    Basically, its vocabulary. Anything I write or say would include examples.

    It is possible for linguists, like anyone else, to use special lexis unnecessarily, or to descend into a kind of jargon.

    What you are certainly going to find on this forum is a very high level of specific lexis

    These examples I could think of.

    'lexis' is the total stock of words a person has in a language - so it is their level of language consisting of vocabulary, as opposed to grammar or syntax.
