The Status of Final Consonant Clusters in English Syllables: Evidence from Children.
Hindson, Barbara Anne; Byrne, Brian
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v64 n1 p119-36 Jan 1997
Two experiments examined the structure of rime and status of the coda as a unit in syllables. Found that children had less difficulty learning a word game which kept the final consonant cluster intact than one which broke it up. The more robust type of coda cluster was as coherent a unit as clusters in the onset position. (EAJ)
