Horiba, Yukie
Studies in Second Language Acquisition, v18 n4 p433-73 Dec 1996
Examines four groups of readers: second-language (L2) intermediate; L2 advanced; first-language (L1) Japanese; and L1 English) when they processed and recalled two passages varying in degree of causal coherence. Findings indicate that L1 readers used much of their attention for higher level processes, whereas L2 readers paid more attention to lower level processes. (64 references) (Author/CK)
