Semantic Constructivity in ESL Reading Comprehension.
Perkins, Kyle
TESOL Quarterly, v17 n1 p19-27 Mar 1983

However, ESL readers' contributions to the text may be marred by language interference, lack of background knowledge, faulty inferencing, and certain data- and resource-limitation phenomena.
