Reading and Listening to Oral-Based Versus Literate-Based Discourse.
Rubin, Donald L.; Hafer, Teresa; Arata, Kevin
Communication Education, v49 n2 p121-33 Apr 2000
Investigates differences between college students' reading and listening processes in conjunction with variation in oral-based or literate-based language style. Finds that: listening required less cognitive effort than reading, irrespective of language style; listeners and readers alike best comprehended oral-based discourse; and that reading was superior for acquiring information, though (or perhaps because) it required greater investment of mental effort.
