Long, Debra L.; Seely, Mark R.; Oppy, Brian J.
Discourse Processes, v27 n3 p281-302 1999
Notes that less skilled readers have difficulty suppressing active, but irrelevant, information during comprehension. Investigates whether the mechanism responsible for suppressing the inappropriate meaning of a word is an automatic process or a strategic, controlled one. Finds that less skilled readers may have difficulty executing a strategic process necessary to overcome response conflict. (SR)
