Abstract Modeling of the Reading Process of Russian Texts: Analysis of Applicability of the Single and Dual Route Models The scope of the diploma is 68 pages. It contains introduction, 3 heads, conclusion and applications. 53 sources were used during the process of writing the project ( including 19 foreign authors and 11 electronic resources). This study is devoted to the analysis of existing reading models, as well as to the study of reading as a psycholinguistic process from the point of view of modern linguistics and the general theory of language. The relevance of the topic is determined by the need to understand the reading processes, since reading is one of the main types of speech activity. The aim of the paper is to analyze the applicability of the reading models of the single and dual route for the Russian language. The subject of the study was the process of reading nonwords in Russian, the object of research are native speakers, students of the Higher School of Economics. To achieve the goal and objectives, the work is divided into several parts. In the first chapter, the main aspects of the reading process are highlighted and discussed. The second chapter is devoted to a review of the main approaches to modeling and description of modern reading models. The third chapter analyzes the current problems of reading modeling, describes our experimental research, which allowed to obtain a number of results relevant to the current state of the study of reading. Our findings suggest that parsing occurs in two stages. In summary, the current study provides insights into parsing mechanisms underlying reading aloud. Future research can focus on determining which units are important for word processing and which factors determine the saliency of different units. Keywords: reading, nonwords, parsing, processing, models, modeling, letters
