The Effective Visual Field in Reading Chinese.
Chen, Hsuan-Chih; Tang, Chi-Kong
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v10 n3-5 p245-54 Oct 1998
Investigates the size and shape of the effective visual field in Chinese reading by systematically manipulating the availability of meaningful information on both sides of a fixated character. Shows that the effective visual field was asymmetric and skewed in the direction of scanning with a highly limited size, composed of the fixated character and two characters to its right. (SR)
