Abstract

One of the most fruitful fields of research in the psychology of reading has been that concerned with the analysis of specific psychological functions involved in reading. A cursory perusal of the literature, however, reveals the fact that the great majority of such investigations have dealt with the mechanical phases of the process, such as eye-movements, rate of reading, typographical factors, and related functions, leaving more or less untouched such processes as reasoning, conception, understanding, and the like. It was the hope of shedding some light on some of these untouched areas that the present investigation was undertaken.
