Extending the E-Z Reader Model of Eye Movement Control to Chinese Readers
Rayner, Keith; Li, Xingshan; Pollatsek, Alexander
Cognitive Science, v31 n6 p1021-1033 Nov 2007
Chinese readers' eye movements were simulated in the context of the E-Z Reader model, which was developed to account for the eye movements of readers of English. Despite obvious differences between English and Chinese, the model did a fairly good job of simulating the eye movements of Chinese readers. The successful simulation suggests that the control of eye movements in reading Chinese is similar to that in an alphabetic language such as English. (Contains 3 tables and 9 notes.)
