Booth, James R.; Hall, William S.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v86 n3 p413-22 Sep 1994
The importance of cognitive internal state words in skilled reading comprehension was studied with 31 5th graders, 32 7th graders, and 10th graders. Positive correlations with cognitive word knowledge were significantly higher for verbal than quantitative achievement percentiles. The order of cognitive word acquisition depends on complex factors.
