Unknown Vocabulary Density and Reading Comprehension.
Hsueh-Chao, Marcella Hu; Nation, Paul
Reading in a Foreign Language, v13 n1 p403-30 2000
Examines what percentage of coverage of text is needed for unassisted reading for pleasure, where learners are able to read without the interruption of looking up words. Looks at the effect of three densities of unknown vocabulary on two measures of reading comprehension, a multiple-choice test and a cued written recall test. (Author/VWL)
