Word recognition thresholds and rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) reading rates for both unrelated words and meaningful sentences were examined across the visual field. Both word recognition thresholds and RSVP reading rates for unrelated words can be equated across the visual field by an increase in size scale. RSVP reading rates for meaningful sentences cannot be equated across the visual field, with the fovea demonstrating a qualitative superiority over the periphery, irrespective of scale. The results suggest that the early visual machinery which underlies word recognition is the same across the visual field apart from a change in scale, whilst the periphery is qualitatively inferior to the fovea at interpreting sentences with meaning.
