The effects of frequency and predictability on eye fixations in reading: An evaluation of the E-Z Reader model

Sparrow, Laurent ; Miellet, Sebastien ; Yann, Coello

In: Behavioral and Brain Sciences

We tested whether the E-Z Reader model can be generalised to French language. The simulation showed that the model can account for the frequency effect. The predictability effect is moreover accurate for words skipping but not for fixation times. We think that this model is psychologically plausible for certain aspects of reading and we used it to evaluate the performance of dyslexic... Di più
