Theoretical Models and Processes of Reading
Toward an Interactive Model of Reading
David E. Rumelhart
The author describes two models of reading: the Gough account of the flow of information during the first seconds of reading, and the LaBerge–Samuels theory of automatic information processing. He then suggests that these models are problematic in the face of evidence that shows reading is highly influenced by surrounding contexts. The chapter concludes with the author's presentation of a new, “interactive” that takes into account both the visual and cognitive processing of letters and of the context and environment that surrounds them.
