A Short Analysis of the Nature of Reading

Feng Liu

Abstract


This paper gives a short analysis of the nature of reading. Though it is generally believed that reading involves perceiving the written form of language, the term reading has not been clearly defined up to date. It is possible to see reading as a process, or to examine the product of that process. Three reading models, namely Bottom-up Model, Top-down Model and Interactive Model, are discussed in this paper.
