Abstract: This is a report of work accomplished and planned as part of the Center for the Study of Reading. The Center for the Study of Reading at BBN is currently focusing on a variety of areas including dependencies of discourse structure on modality, developmental studies of oral conversation in relation to written text, story structure, rhetorical structure and the author-reader relationship, background knowledge, comparative analysis of stories for children, educational games and activities, cultural variation and reading comprehension, comprehension of sentence meaning, metacognition, readability, TV captioning for the deaf, teaching strategies, word recognition, interactions between bottom-up and top-down aspects of reading, and writing and its relationship to reading. Each of the following sections briefly describes our past and present work in a particular area, demonstrates its role in reading comprehension, discusses future work needed in the area and considers how the research might affect classroom practice.
