    Lexis usually refers to all words in a language that have a meaning but not their inflections.
    Lexicon - this includes the morphemes.
    Vocabulary - a list of words with an explanation.

    Does my use of "lexicon" below work?

    By reading authentic materials such as newspapers and magazines, language learners can see how people use lexicon in real life. This is far superior to reading grammar books alone.

    Many thanks! :)
