Word frequency and predictability effects in reading French: An evaluation of the E-Z Reader model

Miellet, Sebastien ; Laurent, Sparrow ; Sara, C., Sereno

In: Psychonomic Bulletin & Review

French readers’ eye movements were monitored as they read a passage of text. Initial global analyses of word frequency, accounting for the majority of fixations in the text, revealed a good fit between the observed data and the simulated data from the E-Z Reader 7 model of eye movement control. However, the model did not perform as well on simulations of contextual predictability effects....

Parafoveal magnification: Visual acuity does not modulate the perceptual span in reading.

Miellet, Sebastien ; O'Donnell, Patrick, J. ; Sereno, Sara, C.

In: Psychological Science, 2009, vol. 20, no. 6, p. 721-728

Models of eye guidance in reading rely on the concept of the perceptual span—the amount of information perceived during a single eye fixation, which is considered to be a consequence of visual and attentional constraints. To directly investigate attentional mechanisms underlying the perceptual span, we implemented a new reading paradigm—parafoveal magnification (PM)— that compensates...

Word frequency and contextual predictability effects in reading: It depends where you’re coming from.

Hand, Christopher, J. ; Miellet, Sebastien ; Neuroimaging, University of Glasgow, UK ; O'Donnell, Patrick, J. ; Sereno, Sara, C.

In: Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance, 2010, vol. 36, no. 5, p. 1294-1313

A word’s frequency of occurrence and its predictability from a prior context are key factors determining how long the eyes remain on that word in normal reading. Past reaction-time and eye movement research can be distinguished by whether these variables, when combined, produce interactive or additive results, respectively. Our study addressed possible methodological limitations of prior...
