Reading research supported with eye-tracking methods
Languages of publication
Eye-tracking reading research has long history which dates back to the second half of the 19th century. In those early times, the simplicity of the equipment used did not allow to carry out research on a large scale but the main facts concerning eye movements were discovered. The situation changed in the late 1970s when computers equipped with eye-tracking systems were introduced. Due to this development large number of studies on cognitive processes, perception, attention, etc. started, reveal­ing enormous potential of this method. The author of the article emphasizes the possibilities of its implementation in foreign language didactics. The article presents a few significant facts concerning eye movements during reading on the basis of which conclusions about the mental processes involved can be drawn. It shortly describes the ways in which the process of reading is usually understood emphasizing the importance of subskills which are crucial in fluent reading in a foreign language. It gives examples of studies where eye-tracking methodology largely contributes to the investigation of the process of reading but the author points to the importance of application of other research methods apart from the technologically advanced eye-tracking equipment when needed.
