The Utility of Phonic Generalizations to Selected Science Series.
Jernigan, Mary Lois
This study was to determine the utility of specific phonic generalizations to vocabularies in science textbooks, words special to science, and to compare the Clymer and Bailey studies with the science study. A list of words compiled from three science series, grades on to six, was analyzed via the generalizations and procedures developed by Clymer. A percent of utility was determined for each generalization. The findings revealed that 28 generalizations were found useful to the science study. Seventeen of the 28 generalizations were also useful to the study pertaining to the words special to science. When comparing Clymer, Bailey, and this science study, 18 generalizations were found to be common and useful to each study. The difference between the Clymer, Bailey, and this science study appeared to be based on the number of words in the study. Conclusions implied a positive relationship between the number of words in the study and the number of generalizations considered useful. (Author/CT)
