Phonemic Effects in the Silent Reading of Hearing and Deaf Children
Locke, John L.
Cognition, 6, 3, 175-87, Sep 78
Twenty-four deaf and 24 hearing children were asked to locate three target letters (c,g, and h) in prose. Target letters were either phonemically modal (pronounced, as g in badge) or nonmodal (silent, as g in rough). Hearing children, as expected, detected significantly more modal than nonmodal forms, while deaf children detected the same number of each. Apparently, deaf children do not effectively mediate print with speech. (Author/CP)
