PRONOUNCEABILITY. STUDIES OF ORAL READING, II.
BIEMILLER, ANDREW J.; LEVIN, HARRY
VERBAL REACTION TIMES TO WORD FORMS THAT DIFFER IN THEIR PRONOUNCEABILITY WERE ASSESSED FOR SIGNFICANCE OF CORRELATION. SINGLE PSEUDOWORDS OF VARYING PRONOUNCEABILITY WERE SHOWN TO 36 THIRD AND FOURTH GRADERS, AND THEIR REACTION TIMES FOR ORAL RESPONSES WERE MEASURED. THE RESPONSES WERE TAPE RECORDED, AND THE PERIOD OF TIME FROM THE EXPOSURE OF THE WORD TO THE ONSET OF THE FINAL PRONUNCIATION WAS MEASURED. CORRELATIONS WERE ACQUIRED BETWEEN MEAN RESPONSE LATENCIES AND RATED PRONOUNCEABILITY PER WORD BY GRADE LEVEL AND WORD LENGTH. THE CORRELATIONS WERE ALL SIGNIFICANT AND CLEARLY INDICATED THAT THE HARDER A WORD WAS TO PRONOUNCE, THE LONGER WAS THE INTERVAL FROM THE EXPOSURE OF THE WORD TO THE VERBAL RESPONSE. (GD)
