Parts, Wholes and Context in reading: a triple dissociation

Elegant research study which found that the proportion of the three components of fluent reading are 62% phonic decoding, 16% whole (high frequency) word recognition, and 22% contextual clues. Each reading process always contributes the same number of words per minute, regardless of whether the other processes are operating.
