초록

The purpose of the study was to investigate the higher-level processes of Korean learners when they read the French literary text, focusing on particular words that cause long-range regressions and fixation duration. Fourteen Korean French major students and three French-speaking students participated in the reading experiment. The result showed that the Korean readers tend to look for continuity and coherence of the literary text. Two major findings were as follows: First, the long-range regressions occurred a lot on ‘easy’ words, such as characters, events, time, place, words that require the background knowledge, and pronouns connected with the information of characters. Second, their fixation durations were relatively long since the target of the regression made the readers go back to the original word and re-read it; thus, the cognitive cost increased. It’s assumed that the long-range regressions have functions of reaffirming the information and reinstating the meaning. As a result, it is necessary for educators to consider the textual context at the semiotic and linguistic level when choosing text for reading instruction.
