Some Psycholinguistic Considerations for Process and Pedagogy in Reading. Teacher Education Forum Series. Vol. 2, No. 24.
Bullock, Terry L.
This paper reviews some of the recent literature from the field of psycholinguistics and relates it to the reading process and to the classroom situation. A brief description of linguistics and psychology is provided, and research studies in the general areas of phonics, comprehension, cultural differences, and pedagogical and diagnostic methods are identified. The literature reviewed in this paper suggests that reading is a cognitive process which translates visual stimuli into underlying language units and that while reading growth is facilitated by oral language sophistication, it is not dependent on speech ability--a theory that has implications for speakers of nonstandard English. A 36-item bibliography is included. (Author/PD)
