Do Bilingual Children Read Words Better in Lists or in Context?
Wong, Mei Yin; Underwood, Geoffrey
Journal of Research in Reading, v19 n1 p61-76 Feb 1996
Investigates whether 11-year-old children in Singapore, from English Dominant or English Non-Dominant backgrounds, read better orally when words were presented in list or text. Finds that readers with less exposure to English relied more on contextual information than more experienced readers, and that reading miscues varied according to whether the words were read in list or context.
