An Investigation of the Relationship Between Teachers' Knowledge of Phonics Generalizations and Their Ability to Pronounce Nonsense Words.
Eberwein, Lowell; Franke, Mary
Elementary preservice and classroom teachers were given a nonsense word test and a test of phonetic generalizations to determine if teachers can use their knowledge of phonetic generalizations when pronouncing unknown nonsense words, and if there is a relationship between the ability to pronounce unknown nonsense words and knowledge of phonetic generalizations. Results revealed that the total teacher population pronounced correctly a little over half of the nonsense words and preservice teachers did better than inservice teachers, and the relationship was low but significant for the total teacher population and high and significant for preservice teachers.
