The Interaction between Linguistic and Paralinguistic Factors in Word Recognition: Towards a Preliminary Model and Its Implications for Defining Good and Poor Readers.
Mosenthal, Peter; And Others
Noting the limitations of recent word recognition research, this paper suggests ways that these limitations might be overcome and then extends these suggestions into a framework for distinguishing between good and poor readers' ability to comprehend words. The paper begins by reviewing the major models of word recognition and discussing their limitations. It then proposes a new model that considers the social context of the reading act, its motivational context, the schema brought to the task by the reader, and the reader's range of strategies for operating within the framework of the linguistic context of a word, phrase, sentence, paragraph, or story. It concludes be defining good and poor readers in light of the new model. (FL)
