The Psychology of Reading: Evolutionary and Revolutionary Developments.
Stanovich, Keith E.
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v12 p3-30 1991
In view of assertions that reading is a form of constrained reasoning, evidence is presented that indicates that lexical access in fluent readers is not at all like reasoning or problem solving. Reading theory is discussed in terms of cognitive science, connectionism, context use in word recognition, modularity, constructivism, and phonological processing. (191 references) (LB)
