Event details

Differences between languages and how they are written give us unique opportunities to address three controversial issues in eye-movement control during reading.

Differences between languages and how they are written give us unique opportunities to address three controversial issues in eye-movement control during reading. The three issues are (1) whether the predictability of the next word influences fixation durations before the eye gets to the word; (2) whether we can get the meaning of words before we look at them; and (3) whether information other than initial letters and word length of the next word influence where we send the eyes.
