Trammell, Robert L.
Language and Speech, v33 n4 p293-323 Oct-Dec 1990
Ten college students and 10 Ph.D.s read aloud 30 unfamiliar English words, 2 to 5 syllables in length of Greek, Latin, and Germanic origin. Each response was compared to the rule predicted, dictionary prescribed, and most frequent pronunciation for the word. Models of reading are examined in light of the results. (71 references) (JL)
