The Relationship between Linguistic Awareness and Reading Comprehension among Fourth-, Sixth- and Eighth-Graders.
Breneman, Beth
The relationship between linguistic awareness (assessed by the Surface Structure Utilization Test and Word Usage Recovery Test) and reading comprehension (assessed by a fifth-word deletion cloze test and by the Metropolitan Reading Subtest Form F, 1970) was examined among 153 fourth graders, 174 sixth graders, and 132 eighth graders. The correlations between the composite linguistic test and reading tests ranged from .66 to .74. The findings suggest that a fundamental aspect of reading comprehension is the ability to apprehend cues from the function words, inflectional endings, and word order of written English. (Author)
