Reading is a multi-faceted, complex construct, and its complexity increases in second-language reading. In this critical volume, Keiko Koda provides an in-depth analysis of second language readings’ multiple dimensions, presenting syntheses of current research on first and second language reading. She applies cross-linguistic analyses of the research, and she explores potential new directions for expanding current research paradigms. Insights into Second Language Reading has remarkable scope, ranging from issues in visual word recognition and text structure, encompassing theoretical issues pertaining to lexical and synctatic decoding mechanisms, and covering practical issues concerning assessment and teaching In synthesizing current research findings, Keiko Koda demonstrates how the complex phenomenon of reading can be systematically studied. Providing ways for enhancing literacy acquisition, second-language learning, and bilingual processing, Insights into Second Language Reading serves as a useful guide for graduate students, college professors, researchers, and foreign language teachers.
