FACTORS AFFECTING READING COMPREHENSION


Szilvia Varga Tánczikné

Abstract

This article explores factors affecting reading comprehension. It discusses different concepts on reading comprehension and describes some components of reading abilities, which are important to decode the written text. Large amount of research was devoted to analyze linguistic, cognitive and other factors influencing reading abilities. This study highlights the role of vocabulary, phonological, morphological awareness and metalinguistic knowledge in reading comprehension.


Keywords
