English Native Speakers Reading German: Syntactic versus Semantic Problems and Strategic Behavior.
Chavez, Monika M. Th.
IRAL, v32 n4 p321-33 Nov 1994
Shows that intermediate learners of German whose first language is English experience more semantic difficulties when reading an English text and more syntactic difficulties when reading a German version of the same text. A stronger emphasis on syntactic features, such as word category, agreement relationships, tensing, and word placement in the teaching of reading German, and other second languages is recommended.
