Title:Eye position and word identification during reading
Author(s):McConkie, G.W.; Hogaboam, Thomas W.
Subject(s):saccades
fixation
anticipation model of reading
peripheral cues
Abstract:College students read text displayed by computer as their eyes were being monitored. On occasional fixations or saccades the text was removed and the subject reported the last word that had been read and tried to guess the next word. Distributions of the location of the last read word with respect to the last fixated word give an indication of what words are being read during a fixation. The data do not support an anticipation model of reading nor the acquisition of peripheral cues concerning upcoming words.
