Processing of Topic Shifts by Adults and Children.
Hyona, Jukka
Reading Research Quarterly, v29 n1 p76-90 Jan-Mar 1994
Investigates the phenomenon of topic shift (sentences initiating a new topic are given additional processing time by skilled readers). Finds adults showed a proportionately greater effect than fifth graders when more difficult expository texts were used but not with easy narratives. Finds that paragraph marking did not influence the processing of topic shifts. (RS)
