Abstract

Reichle et al. claim to successfully simulate a frequency effect of 60% on skipping rate in human data, whereas the original article reports an effect of only 4%. We suspect that the deviation is due to the length of the words in the different conditions, which implies that E-Z Reader is wrong in its conception of eye guidance between words.
