Scientific realism in studies of reading.


Scientific realism in studies of reading.

Ed. by Alan D. Flurkey et al.

Lawrence Erlbaum


315 pages




With psycholinguistic and sociolinguistic approaches to reading-as-meaning construction, the contributors of these articles provide research-based insights that help to explain the nature of reading. They use a variety of tools to explain what goes on when we are reading, they address miscue analysis as scientific realism, transactional models of reading through eye-movement research, meaning in reading with words and contexts, new insights on aphasia, eye movements of beginning readers, eye movement and miscue analysis in young bilinguals, the reading process in Arabic, a linguistic description of written Chinese and its cueing systems, Chinese and English readings of embedded anomalies in written texts, miscues and eye movements as functions of comprehension, and reading flow. Print of the review copy was occasionally of poor quality.
