Some Hypotheses on the Nature of Difficulty and Ease in Second Language Reading: An Application of Schema Theory.
Hauptman, Philip C.
Foreign Language Annals, v33 n6 p622-31 Nov-Dec 2000
Examines one aspect of the second language reading process: the nature of the concepts of "difficulty" and "ease" within a schema-theoretic perspective. Addresses this topic through L2 reading at the university or adult level. Proposes a number of hypotheses suggested by both the empirical and pedagogical literature that will lay the groundwork for a modern view of difficulty/ease. (Author/VWL)
