The Independence of Letter, Word, and Meaning Identification in Reading
Smith, Frank; Holmes, Deborah Lott
Reading Research Quarterly, 6, 3, 394-415, Spr 71
Examines and rejects two traditional assumptions about fluent reading: that identification of letters is necessary to identify words; and that identification of words is necessary to comprehend. Proposes that identification and comprehension are two separate tasks and that a reader comprehends because he reads for meaning in the first place. (MB)
