This study is an attempt to compare the reading comprehension ability of two groups of intermediate adult EFL Iranian students on two reading passages (one narrative and the other expository) under two input conditions: linguistically modified input, characterized by both lexical and syntactic modifications, and interactionally modified input with no linguistic modifications but with opportunities for interaction with the teacher. The results of the study revealed that the students who were allowed to seek clarification by asking questions understood the texts better than the students who had read the modified version of the texts. The conclusions drawn from the findings of this study are twofold: they lend empirical support to Long’s Interaction Hypothesis, and recommend the use of authentic reading materials, accompanied by classroom interaction.

"Abstract This study is an attempt to compare the reading comprehension ability of two groups of intermediate adult EFL Iranian students on two reading passages (one narrative and the other expository) under two input conditions: linguistically modified input, characterized by both lexical and syntactic modifications, and interactionally modified input with no linguistic modifications but with opportunities for interaction with the teacher. ” Long (1996: 418) has more recently specified this term as negotiation for meaning as: … the process in which, in an effort to communicate, learners and competent speakers provide and interpret signals of their own and their interlocutor’s perceived comprehension, thus providing adjustments to linguistic form, conversational structure, message content, or all of three, until an acceptable level of understanding is achieved. Second, they suggest that if reading input is to become optimally comprehensible, there should be abundant interaction between the teacher and the learners, which in turn gives rise to negotiation of meaning. Appendix B (The Modified Narrative Text) For some time the Princess had been aware that the Queen, though she was still extremely fond of her, had been increasingly critical of her behavior, and that she strongly disapproved of the way she and the Prince had spent so much time traveling about when they should have been quietly awaiting the birth of a baby who might have been expected to enter the world weighing more than three and three-quarter pounds."
