Brazilian readers and contextual reference

Lilia M. O. Carioni

Abstract


This article describes an experiment carried out using
Brazilian university students at UFSC, the purpose being to check comprehension relationships between two types of contextual reference and two languages, Portuguese and English. A major stimulus for the research was the question: are Brazilian students' difficulties in reading English related more to English language difficulties or to difficulties in processing text in general?
