Shu, Hua; And Others
Reading Research Quarterly, v30 n1 p76-95 Jan-Mar 1995
Finds significant incidental learning of word meanings in 447 American and Chinese children in third and fifth grades.

Suggests that incidental acquisition of word meanings while reading is a universal in written language development. (RS)
