Toward the Use of Eye Movements in the Study of Language Processing. Technical Report No. 134.
McConkie, George W.; And Others
Three problems in the use of eye movement data for the study of language processing are discussed in this report: the perceptual span problem, the data summary problem, and the eye-mind lag problem. Recent research on perception during reading that bears on these problems is also described. Finally, a general approach to the use of eye movement data for studying language processing, based on present knowledge of perceptual processing and eye movement control during reading, is presented.
