Assessing the Importance of Subvocalization during Normal Silent Reading.
Daneman, Meredyth; Newson, Margaret
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v4 n1 p55-77 Mar 1992
Uses a concurrent speaking model to assess the importance of subvocalization during the reading of lengthy natural prose passages. Shows that having subjects count aloud while reading interfered with their comprehension and recall but did not affect the durability of the memory trace. Suggests the detrimental effect on comprehension was due to a competition for speech-related resources. (RS)
