The Relationship between Knowledge of "Icraab," Lexical Knowledge, and Reading Comprehension of Non-Native Readers of Arabic.
Khaldieh, Salim
Modern Language Journal, v85 n3 p416-31 Aut 2001
Reports on an investigation into the role played by knowledge of both "icraab" and vocabulary in the reading comprehension of American learners of Arabic as a foreign language. Two groups, proficient and less proficient, of nonnative readers of Arabic read an expository text, wrote an immediate recall protocol in their first language to measure their overall reading comprehension, and completed a vocabulary and an icraab task. Results are discussed. (Author/VWL)
