Reading Research Quarterly, v29 n2 p178-88 Apr-Jun 1994
Finds that orthographic information dominated word recognition of both good and poor readers and that both semantic contexts and text difficulty influenced the reading of target words. Shows that good readers used orthographic information more than did poor readers, whereas poor readers used semantic context more than good readers. Finds support for the interactive-compensatory model. (SR)
