The Role of the Situation Model for Rereading Benefits in Korean-German Bilinguals
Shin, Hong Im; Wippich, Werner
Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, v45 n5 p1021-1032 Oct 2016
This study examines whether rereading effects transfer across two different languages at the passage level. Fluent Korean-German bilinguals read passages twice either in the same language or a different language, and passages shared either words or situations. The dependent measure was the overall reading time for the second passage reading. Repetition effects were found only for passages in which situation models were preserved, although the translation altered the surface form and the textbase, demonstrating that the situation model plays an important role in bilingual repetition effects and that the context-dependent model Raney ("Psychon Bull Rev" 10:15-28, 2003) provides a theoretically meaningful guide for explaining rereading effects.
