The Graphoneme Concept: A Systematized Approach to Initial Reading Instruction.
Jones, Virginia W.
The employment of the graphoneme approach in reading instruction is based on several generally accepted concepts regarding the learning process and the nature of the English language. A graphoneme is a closed syllable, a syllable which begins with a vowel and ends with a consonant, and it is thought to be the stable unit in the relationship between graphic representation and oral pronunciation. The nature of graphonemes is explained as is the teaching procedure in the graphoneme approach. A representative list of graphonemes is included. (NH)
