Phonemic Analysis and Synthesis as Word Attack Skills: Revisited.
Fox, Barbara; Routh, Donald K.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v76 n6 p1059-64 Dec 1984
This study examined the effects of phonemic analysis and synthesis on a reading analog task. Kindergarteners (n=31) who could not segment syllables into phonemes were assigned to a control group, segmenting training, or segmenting and blending training. Results suggest phonemic awareness skills are causally related to learning to read. (Author/BS)
