Bassin, Carolyn B.; Martin, Clessen J.
Journal of Educational Psychology, 68, 5, 649-52, Oct 76
A 2,217-word news article was reduced 10 percent, 30 percent, and 50 percent by one of three reduction methods: word frequency, grammatical, and subjective. Reduction method had no effect on comprehension at the 10 percent and 30 percent reduction levels, but at the 50 percent level the subjective method produced better reading performance than the other two.
