Hammadou, Joann
Modern Language Journal, v84 n1 p38-50 Spr 2000
Explores the impact of analogies and prior content knowledge on reading comprehension of expository texts by both first and second language readers. Written recall protocols were analyzed for two texts. Readers were university students of French or English as a foreign language. Analogy was to have a debilitating effect on comprehension regardless of learner group on the first text and no significant effect on the second text. (Author/VWL)
