Proper Names for Use in Beginning Reading Instruction.
A list of 500 proper names, primarily first names, is coded for spelling-to-sound correspondences and stress, and information is given on the type of name (first or last), sex of name, style (nickname or complete name), alternate spellings, pronunciations, and usages. The author points out that proper names comprise roughly 9 percent of the words in reading material and that it is, therefore, necessary to teach beginning readers proper names as a part of their active vocabulary. Appendixes to the main list include selected biblical, mythical, and literary names, common Japanese-American names, and common Mexican-American names. References are included. (AL)
