International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, v4 n2 p77-96 2001
Argues that there are many problems attendant to the testing of second language inferencing.

Four categories of inferences were tested in four different situations. Results showed that certain inferences were more difficult to make. (Author/VWL)
