Oral Blending in Young Children: Effects of Sound Pauses, Initial Sound, and Word Familiarity.
Weisberg, Paul; And Others
Journal of Educational Research, v82 n3 p139-45 Jan-Feb 1989
Results of two experiments involving kindergarten and first grade students indicate that oral blending of dictated sounds into consonant-vowel-consonant words was markedly and significantly better when no pauses intervened between sounds than when pauses of one or three seconds intervened. Interactions between pause interval and word familiarity were also found. (IAH)
