Guo Fang;North China Electric Power University;  
Image-text relation is a hot issue in multimodal discourse analysis. Based on an analysis of picture book reading by Chinese and American readers,this paper aims to investigate the impact of language level and age factor on interpretations of image-text relations. The results show that language level plays a crucial role in readers' interpretation of image-text relations. Readers with low language level lower of language level are more dependent on pictures for discourse understanding and they tend to think images and texts are independent of each other. Readers with a little bit higher language level relate images to texts for meaning making. Readers with high language level are more dependent on texts for meaning building. Adult readers and child readers interpret image-text relations differently. Adult readers think that texts support images while child readers think images support texts.
