On visual and contextual factors in reading: A reply to Rayner and Slowiaczek

Responds to K. Rayner and M. L. Slowiaczek's (see record 1982-07090-001) criticism of the present authors' (see record 1982-07080-001) finding that expectations increase the benefit derived from parafoveal visual information. It is reemphasized that the data demonstrate that Ss are sensitive to the information contained in the preview, both when they have expectations about the set of possible target words and when they do not. Also emphasized is the fact that the extent to which the preview produces a benefit depends on S's expectations. (16 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
