Are Whole Words Perceptual Units in Reading?
Silverman, Wayne P.; Ulatowski, Paul E.
Perceptual and Motor Skills, v53 n3 p811-26 Dec 1981

Results suggest that (1) the size of compelling perceptual units seems limited, and (2) unit size is not necessarily related to the correspondence between letter order and pronounceability.
