Bernhardt, Elizabeth B.; Kamil, Michael L.
Applied Linguistics, v16 n1 p15-34 Mar 1995
Reinterprets the question of whether second-language reading is a language problem (linguistic threshold) or a reading problem (linguistic interdependence), using data from a study of 186 adult native English speakers reading in English and Spanish. Results indicated that neither hypothesis is wholly reflective of the second-language reading process. (38 references) (MDM)
