A STUDY OF SELECTED SPELLING-TO-SOUND CORRESPONDENCE PATTERNS.
VENEZKY, RICHARD L.; WEIR, RUTH H.
A LINGUISTIC MODEL WAS DEVELOPED FOR RELATING SPELLING TO SOUND AND TO EXPLORE THOSE FACETS OF ENGLISH ORTHOGRAPHY WHICH MIGHT RELATE TO THE READING PROCESS. A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF THE BASIS OF THE ORTHOGRAPHY WAS MADE WHICH INCLUDED DISCUSSIONS OF THE GRAPHEME-PHONEME PARALLEL, RELATIONAL UNITS, MARKERS, AND GRAPHEMIC ALTERNATIONS. REVISIONS AND EXTENSIONS WERE MADE TO FORMULATE THIS IDEAL SYSTEM FOR TRANSLATING FROM SPELLING TO SOUND, BASED ON AN ORIGINAL GROUP OF 20,000 WORDS. TENTATIVE IMPLICATIONS POINTED TO THE POSSIBILITY OF TEACHING VARIOUS PRONUNCIATIONS NOT BY THE SIMPLE-SEQUENCE METHOD WHERE VARIANT PRONUNCIATIONS ARE PRESENTED SEQUENTIALLY, BUT BY OFFERING ALL THE DIFFERENT PRONUNCIATIONS AT ONCE, WORKING WITH PAIRS OF WORDS WHICH SHOW THE DIFFERENT PRONUNCIATIONS. IT WAS FELT THAT THE POTENTIAL GENERALIZATION DERIVED FROM THIS DIFFERENTIATION APPROACH SHOULD EFFECT BETTER RESULTS THAN THE SIMPLE-SEQUENCE METHOD. (GD)
