The Influence of French on the English Spelling of Children in Early French Immersion.
St. Pierre, Lucille; And Others
Canadian Modern Language Review, v51 n2 p330-47 Jan 1995
Investigates the nature of the spelling lag existing in the development of English spelling in early French immersion students. Results reveal in grade three a tendency to employ French orthography to spell English words, a tendency that increases as words become less familiar. By grade eight, this tendency diminishes greatly but remains evident for certain phonemes. (22 references) (Author/CK)
