"Suivez le guide"...L'acquisition de routines de lecture en langue 1 et en langue 2 ("Follow the Guide"...Acquisition of Reading Routines in First and Second Languages).
Travaux Neuchatelois de Linguistique (Tranel), n29 p155-167 Dec 1998
A study investigated the acquisition of grammar-based reading routines in both first and second languages (L1 and L2). The objective was to determine whether routine integration of grammatical information to construct a semantic representation of the text is a matter of general cognitive development or language-specific learning. Subjects were secondary school students (n=193), all native speakers of French studying German as a second language, who were administered tests of text anticipation. Results indicate that in L2 reading, these students did not use the reading routines they already had acquired in their first language, suggesting that grammar-based reading routines can not be considered part of general cognitive development, but are rather related to specific language learning.
