Automatic and Conscious Context Effects in Average and Advanced Readers.
Simpson, Greg B.; Lorsbach, Thomas C.
Journal of Research in Reading, v10 n2 p102-12 Sep 1987
Describes a study indicating that the ability to use context deliberately to facilitate word recognition reaches maximum for average readers by grade six and does not appear to show further improvements at higher reading skill levels. Discusses possible reasons for the discrepancies between this and other studies that use incomplete contexts. (HTH)
