The Effects of the Reader's Skill and the Difficulty of the Text on the Perceptual Span in Reading.
Patberg, Judythe; Yonas, Albert
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, v4 n4 p545-52 Nov 1978
Good and poor student readers and adults read texts in normal format and with 13 spaces between words. Wide spacing improved comprehension for poor readers but did not affect their reading efficiency, while it substantially impaired the efficiency of the other groups. Text difficulty did not interact significantly with spacing. (SJL)
