Zhu, Jingyi – Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, 2020
Hauptman (2000) proposed a modern view about the easy/difficult nature of second language (L2) reading, proposing five factors: background knowledge, signaling, language, discourse, and length. Little research, however, has explored the hypotheses empirically. To fill this gap, this qualitative case study investigates: 1) What are the factors…

The priorities of the words taught in language education are determined within the framework of international criteria set through corpus-based studies. Corpus and sub-corpus consisting of many layers, written and oral, increase the efficiency of the process…

Liao, Fei-Hsuan – RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, 2020
The issue of phrasal verb learning has caused much discussion and attracted vigorous investigation. Inspired by the theory of conceptual metaphor, a pedagogical experiment was conducted to investigate whether an approach focussing on sense extension of particle "out" in terms of conceptual metaphors can enhance the learning of phrasal…

Mason, Lucia; Borella, Erika; Diakidoy, Irene-Anna N.; Butterfuss, Reese; Kendeou, Panayiota; Carretti, Barbara – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2020
Inhibition is thought to help suppress interference from misconceptions in science learning. Using a pre-, post-, and delayed posttest design, we examined the influence on learning from science texts of three inhibitory-related functions--prepotent response inhibition, resistance to distractor interference, and resistance to proactive…

Shin, Jaran; Sailors, Misty; McClung, Nicola; Hoffman, James V.; Pearson, P. David; Kaambankadzanja, Davie; Mwale, Liveness – Literacy, 2020
Children in low-income, postcolonial countries such as Malawi have few opportunities with quality reading materials that promote independence as readers. In this study, we argue that access to locally produced text relevant to linguistic and cultural contexts is a fundamental human right for children throughout the world. Situating this study…

The sample consisted of 910 twins in fourth through ninth grades (M[subscript age] = 12.33 years, SD = 1.41) from the Florida Twin Project on…

Tiffin-Richards, Simon P.; Schroeder, Sascha – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2020
Words are seldom read in isolation. Predicting or anticipating upcoming words in a text, based on the context in which they are read, is an important aspect of efficient language processing. In sentence reading, words with congruent preceding context have been shown to be processed faster than words read in neutral or incongruous contexts. The…

This study considered a total of six possible combinations. Six groups of Chinese…
