Linguistic Complexity And Text Comprehension

by Alice Davison, Linguistic Complexity And Text Comprehension Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Linguistic Complexity And Text Comprehension book, Standard readability formulas are widely accepted as reliable means of determining text difficulty for readers. This book examines the shortcomings of these formulas, both for professionals who try to use these formulas to match texts with readers and for others who study how language is understood. Language comprehension experts in cognitive psychology, education, and linguistics present alternative viewpoints concerning the issue of effective readability predictors. The long-term result: new questions raised by the research in this book should help to make texts more comprehensible and to provide a theoretically sound model of language processing and interpretation.

Text Complexity And Reading Comprehension Tests

by Erik Castello, Text Complexity And Reading Comprehension Tests Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Text Complexity And Reading Comprehension Tests book, Based on the analysis of a specially compiled corpus of internationally recognized English as a foreign language (EFL) reading tests at different levels of proficiency, this volume explores the relation between the complexity of written texts and the difficulty of reading comprehension tests. It brings together linguistic investigations into the text-inherent complexity of the tests and a study of the data derived from their administration to groups of Italian university students. The study of text complexity draws on corpus linguistics, text linguistics and systemic functional linguistics. Both quantitative and qualitative analyses are carried out on the language used in the reading texts and in the related tasks that make up the corpus of tests. The assessment of test difficulty, on the other hand, is informed by research on language testing, and, in particular, by findings and methodologies of Classical Test Theory and Item Response Theory. Relevant aspects of these theories are used to analyze and interpret both the data obtained from the administration of the tests and the data collected by means of feedback questionnaires completed by test takers. The application of such diverse methodologies and the subsequent comparison of the results of the analyses has brought out interesting correlations between text-inherent complexity, perceived test difficulty and actual test difficulty.

Sprachliche Kommunikation Verstehen Und Verst Ndlichkeit

by Steffen-Peter Ballstaedt, Sprachliche Kommunikation Verstehen Und Verst Ndlichkeit Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Sprachliche Kommunikation Verstehen Und Verst Ndlichkeit book, Eine theoretisch fundierte praktische Anleitung für alle Berufsfelder in Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft Verständlich Schreiben ist eine komplexe und anspruchsvolle kommunikative Aufgabe. Schwer verständliche Texte behindern in vielen gesellschaftlichen Bereichen die Kommunikation, z. B. in der Verwaltung, in Politik, Justiz, Wirtschaft, Technik und Medizin. Für zahlreiche Berufsfelder stellt das Verfassen verständlicher Texte daher eine Schlüsselqualifikation dar. Der Band bietet dazu kommunikationstheoretisch fundierte praktische Anregungen. Auf der Grundlage einer Theorie des Verstehens wird aufgezeigt, welche grammatischen (Wörter, Sätze, Texte) und pragmatischen (Sprechakte) Formulierungen das Verstehen und die sprachliche Kommunikation erleichtern oder erschweren. Das Buch gibt einen interdisziplinären Überblick zu Theorien von Verständlichkeit und sprachlicher Kommunikation. Praktische Hilfsmittel vom Fragebogen bis zum Computertool erleichtern es, die Verständlichkeit von Texten zu evaluieren und zu optimieren.

Textverstehen

by Hans Strohner, Textverstehen Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Textverstehen book, Textverstehen ist ein grundlegender Teil der menschlichen Sprachverarbeitung und beinhaltet einen kognitiven und einen kommunikativen Aspekt. Der kognitive Aspekt bezieht sich auf die Informationsverarbeitung im Textrezipienten, während der kommunikative Aspekt das durch das Textverstehen bewirkte gemeinsame Wissen der Kommunikationspartner umfaßt. Sowohl in kognitiver als auch in kommunikativer Hinsicht geht es beim Textverstehen vor allem um die Herstellung von Sinn. Zum einen ist dies semantischer Sinn, der Ordnung im Weltwissen schafft, zum anderen pragmatischer Sinn, der die Beziehungen zwischen den Kommunikationspartnern regelt und so die Grundlage für die soziale Verständigung bildet. Diese Kernaussage des Buchs wird mit Hilfe einer systemtheoretischen Begrifflichkeit vorbereitet und in ihren verschiedenen theoretischen und empirischen Aspekten ausführlich diskutiert und belegt.
