Schwanenflugel, Paula J.; Noyes, Caroline R.
Journal of Literacy Research, v28 n1 p35-54 Mar 1996
Examines the influence of word meanings on lexical processing in high- and low-skill readers. States that rated context availability was a significant predictor of lexical decision times and word reading accuracy beyond nonsemantic factors. Finds that ability to retrieve meanings of low-context-availability words easily is an important component in the development of skilled reading. (PA)
