L2 Working Memory Capacity and L2 Reading Skill.
Harrington, Mike; Sawyer, Mark
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v14 n1 p25-38 Mar 1992
Examines the sensitivity of second-language (L2) working memory (ability to store and process information simultaneously) to differences in reading skills among advanced L2 learners. Subjects with larger L2 working memory capacities scored higher on measures of L2 reading skills, but no correlation was found between reading and passive short-term memory capacity.
