The present study was planned to examine the effects of the Korean logical ending connective affixes(causal and additive relationship connectives) on text comprehension and recall. It is reasonable that if the logical ending connective affixes influence the local coherence construction between two sentences, the existence of the ending connective affix facilitates reading comprehension and recall. Also, in this study, the interaction between reading ability and the effects of the ending connective affix on reading comprehension were examined. Two experiments were conducted. In Experiment 1, reading time as comprehension speed was measured. The results showed that the existence of the causal and additive ending connective affix facilitated reading comprehension, and this facilitative effect of the two affixes on reading comprehension occurred regardless of reading ability. In Experiment 2, we examined whether the existence of the ending connective affix facilitates text recall. The results showed that the ending connective affix enhanced recall for both the poor and skillful reading groups. In conclusion, the logical connective ending affix has a positive effect on reading comprehension and recall, and this effect occurs regardless of reading ability.
