L2 Reading Ability: Further Insight into the Short-Circuit Hypothesis.
Taillefer, Gail F.
Modern Language Journal, v80 n4 p461-77 Win 1996
Discusses the notion of a language proficiency threshold that short circuits the transfer of reading ability from the native language (L1) to a second language (L2). This study, in which cognitive complexity of tasks and students' L2 proficiency levels vary, focuses on university students in France reading preprofessional English texts.
