Linguistic Emphases in Recent Reading Research.
Pugh, A. K.
Noting that the growth of linguistics as a discipline has been accompanied by an awareness of the relevance of linguistic research to the study and teaching of reading, this paper examines four points at which linguists and reading researchers have met. The four areas reviewed are: (1) linguistic methods in teaching reading, (2) sociolinguistics and reading, (3) the psycholinguistics of reading, and (4) analysis of text and discourse. The paper concludes that emphases in modern linguistics on interaction and on text, taken with the well-established rigor in analysis and description, are important for future reading research.
