Description

Reading and language learning are interdependent. While reading necessitates linguistic knowledge, reading ability enhances linguistic knowledge expansion. This volume explores the reciprocal relationship between reading and language learning.

  • Explores how reading and language learning are interrelated, bringing new insights to discussions on the
    unique nature of reading development in a second language

  • Covers topics including cross-linguistic constraints on second-language reading development, bilingualism
    and literacy, linguistic resources and reading strategies, incidental vocabulary acquisition through reading,
    local language processing and global text comprehension, and cross-linguistic effects on word identification

  • Views second-language reading as a multi-faceted and multi-lingual construct

  • Examines a variety of reading sub-skills, ranging from word identification to discourse comprehension.
