The Evolution of the Young Child's Concept of "Word" as a Unit of Spoken and Written Language.
Roberts, Beth
Reading Research Quarterly, v27 n2 p124-38 1992
Discusses a longitudinal study of children's evolving concept of "word." Concludes that tacit awareness of word in spoken and written language precedes explicit awareness. Finds that children in different developmental stages perform differently on reading tasks. Suggests that development of the concept of word relates to experience with writing and to cognitive development. (SG)
