The Effect of Semantic Context on Children's Word Recognition
Schvaneveldt, Roger; And Others
Child Development, 48, 2, 612-616, Jun 77
This study employs a lexical-decision task to investigate second- and fourth-grade children's use of semantic context in word recognition. Results showed that younger and poorer readers benefit at least as much from semantic context in word recognition as do older and better readers. (Author/JMB)
