Are Children's Representations of Words Distributed? Effects of Orthographic Neighbourhood, Size, Consistency, and Regularity of Naming.
Laxon, Veronica; And Others
Language and Cognitive Processes, v9 n1 p1-27 Feb 1994
A study of 2 groups of children (mean ages 7.47 and 9.04 years and reading ages of 7.27 and 9.48 years) showed a word type effect attributable to the more skilled readers. Regular-consistent words were read more accurately than regular-inconsistent and exception words; the latter two did not differ. Familiar words are appended. (Contains 57 references.) (Author)
