On the Nature of Phonological Development: Evidence from Normal Children's Spelling Errors.
Hoffman, Paul R.; Norris, Janet A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v32 n4 p787-94 Dec 1989
Analysis of spelling errors of 45 primary-school children needing reading and writing improvement found that a considerable proportion of errors involved both syllabic reduction and feature changes similar to those seen in normal speech development. A model is presented to account for the phonological simplifications seen in both speech and spelling patterns. (Author/JDD)
