The effect of contextual constraint on eye movements in reading was examined by asking subjects to read sentences that contained a target word that varied in contextual constraint; high-, medium-, or low-constraint target words were used. Subjects fixated low-constraint target words longer than they did either high-or medium-constraint target words. In addition, they skipped high-constraint words more than they did either medium-or low-constraint target words. The results further confirm that contextual constraint has a strong influence on eye movements during reading.
