Zusammenfassung, Abstract
In a cross-sectional study, we examined the relationship between the quality of lexicalrepresentations and text comprehension skill in German primary school children (grades 1-4). Wemeasured the efficiency and accuracy of orthographical, phonological, and meaningrepresentations by means of computerized tests. Text comprehension skill was assessed with astandardized reading test with questions requiring recognition of text information andinferencing. Both the accuracy of and the efficiency of access to the three types of lexicalrepresentations contributed to explaining interindividual variation in text comprehension skill.Results from a path-analytic model suggest a specific causal order of the three components oflexical quality with the quality of meaning representations partly mediating the effects of formrepresentations.
