VOWEL-PAIRS--DOMINATION, COOPERATION, CREATION, SEPARATION.
BURMEISTER, LOU E.
THE PHONEMIC BEHAVIOR OF ALL VOWEL-PAIR SINGLE GRAPHEMES FOUND IN 17,310 COMMON ENGLISH WORDS WAS STUDIED, AND THE PHONEMIC BEHAVIOR OF VOWEL-PAIR GRAPHEMES FREQUENTLY FOUND IN THIS SAMPLE WAS ANALYZED. THE GRAPHEME TO PHONEME RELATIONSHIP FOR EACH POSSIBLE VOWEL PAIR IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE WAS EXAMINED. TABLES SHOW THE FREQUENCY AND PERCENT OF OCCURRENCE OF EACH VOWEL-PAIR GRAPHEME, THE PERCENT OF OCCURRENCE OF THE THREE MOST COMMON PHONEMES, AND THE TOTAL FREQUENCY OF OCCURRENCE, INCLUDING FREQUENCY OF OCCURRENCE OF THE THREE MOST COMMON PHONEMES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE FIRST VOWEL MAY DOMINATE THE SECOND, THAT THE TWO VOWELS MAY COOPERATE OR BLEND, THAT A NEW SOUND MAY BE CREATED, AND THAT VOWEL-PAIRS MAY SEPARATE. AREAS WHERE RESTRAINT SHOULD BE EXERCISED IN THE TEACHING OF COMMONLY FOUND GENERALIZATIONS ARE SUGGESTED. ONLY VOWEL-PAIRS WHICH REPRESENTED A SINGLE PHONEME WERE ANALYZED. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE (CHICAGO, FEBRUARY 6-10, 1968). IT ALSO APPEARED IN "THE READING TEACHER," VOLUME 21, NUMBER 5, FEBRUARY 1968.
