Automatic Contextual Facilitation in Readers of Three Ages.
West, Richard F.; Stanovich, Keith E.
Child Development, v49 n3 p717-27 Sep 1978, Sep78
Fourth and sixth graders and adults read words preceded by either a congruous, incongruous, or no-sentence context, and then completed another task where they named the color of the target word. Results suggested that context effects are mediated by automatic processes which decrease in importance with age and reading ability. (Author/JMB)
