Phases of Development in Learning to Read Words by Sight.
Ehri, Linnea C.
Journal of Research in Reading, v18 n2 p116-25 Sep 1995
Distinguishes four phases in the development of sight word reading: prealphabetic, partial alphabetic, full alphabetic, and consolidated alphabetic. Suggests that this system represents the regularities that underlie the written forms of English words that all learners must internalize to build a fully functioning sight vocabulary. (RS)
