In this paper, we briefly review some recent studies that have clearly demonstrated in importance of lexical factors on eye movements during reading. We introduce the reader to eye-movement recording and explain its importance within the field of experimental psychology as a tool with which we can examine the psychological processes underlying reading. We then provide a summary of (mainly) eye-movement experiments in three areas: reading disappearing text, reading text with transposed letters, and morphological processing of compound words. Throughout the paper our central claim is that processes associated with lexical identification exert a strong and quite immediate effect on eye-movement behaviour during reading.
