Word Decoding and Rule-Learning in Normal and Disabled Readers.
Morrison, Frederick J.
Remedial and Special Education (RASE), v5 n3 p20-27 May-Jun 1984
A series of experiments on rule-based and word-specific views of decoding are examined. Results reveal that inconsistent rules and words are differentially harder for disabled readers than for normal readers. Additional evidence suggests that disabled readers may suffer a primary problem in learning irregular rule systems. (Author/CL)
