Comparative Studies on the Roles of Linguistic Knowledge and Sentence Processing Speed in L2 Listening and Reading Comprehension in an EFL Tertiary Setting
Oh, Eunjou
Reading Psychology, v37 n2 p257-285 2016
The present study investigated the relative contributions of vocabulary knowledge, grammar knowledge, and processing speed to second language listening and reading comprehension. Seventy-five Korean university students participated in the study. Results showed the three tested components had a significant portion of shared variance in explaining LC (33.9%) and RC (41.8%) without any unique significant contribution of each component. Two comprehension processes were similar in that vocabulary knowledge in its corresponding presentation mode and parsing best predicted a respective comprehension construct but different in that processing speed was part of the best combination of predictors only in RC.
