Reading Skill and the Role of Verbal Experience in Decoding.
Hogaboam, Thomas W.; Perfetti, Charles A.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v70 n5 p717-29 Oct 1978
Three experiments examined the relationship between reading skill and decoding. Children decoded and matched words and pseudowords of different syllable lengths presented in both aural and printed form. Prior verbal experience was manipulated. Decoding differences were not wholly attributable to prior experience with word units, as processes involving phonetic components were involved. (Author/RD)
