I think someone was asking about research into how accomplished readers attack unfamiliar words. (Of course, I may have been having this conversation with myself......c'est la vie after 40)

Regardless of the state of my sanity, here's a link to the 2001 Rayner et al study which includes a summary of research into whether accomplished readers see whole words or sounds. (p45ff) Interesting.
