    Eye movements in reading are sensitive to fovea! and parafoveal word features. Whereas the influence of orthographic or phonological parafoveal information on gaze control is undisputed, there has been no reliable evidence for early parafoveal extraction of semantic information in alphabetic...

    This study explores early stages of reading acquisition, specifically the relation of phoneme blending and letter recoding to individual differences in word decoding. The hypothesis was that facility in letter recoding and accuracy of phoneme blending are substantial components of word decoding...

    The article discusses a study on the accuracy of using a simple method for Flesch's 1948 formula for reading ease. An empirical test which studied 360 one-hundred word samples taken from 22 employee handbooks put out by various divisions of the General Motors Corp. found that the mean reading...

    This study aimed at investigating the ERP correlates (N170 and P300 components) of a multimodal training program focused in dyslexia. ERPs were obtained from 32 electrodes in 24 French children with developmental dyslexia (mean age 10 years 7 months) during a visual lexical decision task. All...
