Gough, Philip B.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v5 n2 p181-92 Jun 1993

Compares the hypothesis that sight words are recognized as wholes to the hypothesis that sight words are recognized as parts. Finds support for the idea that first words are recognized by "selective association." (BS)
