To determine the role of ongoing processing on eye guidance in reading, two studies examined the e€ects of semantic context on the eyesÕ initial landing position in words of di€erent levels of processing diculty. Results from both studies clearly indicate a shift of the initial ®xation location towards the end of the words for words that can be predicted from a prior semantic context. However, shifts occur only in high-frequency words and with prior ®xations close to the beginning of the… CONTINUE READING
