Why Is This “Functional” Vocabulary?

The Word “Ability” is a Word which may or may not be in The Instructions, one of The Questions, or one of The Reading Passages or Audio Files in The TOEFL Exam.

However — since The TOEFL Exam tests one’s “Ability” to function in a university-type setting — and this word is also used to say as much in all the text-books & Preparation Materials FOR The TOEFL Exam — then this definitely qualifies the word:  “Ability” to be what we refer to as:  “Functional TOEFL Vocabulary”.
