Title:Mental chronometry during fixations in reading: Processing orthographic characteristics of the text
Author(s):Reddix, Michael D.; McConkie, George W.; Zola, David
Subject(s):eye movement
orthographic errors
fixation duration Mental Chronometry
Abstract:College students read text on a CRT while their eye movements were being monitored and recorded. The text contained orthographic errors. Hazard distributions of fixation durations on original words and substituted irregular orthographic strings were examined. The data indicated that eye movement control is affected by orthographic characteristics of the language within 140-159 msec. The results are interpreted within the framework of a chronology of processing events occurring during a single fixation in reading, and are in agreement with a similar study that entailed display changes.
