Learning to Read in Arabic: Reading, Syntactic, Orthographic and Working Memory Skills in Normally Achieving and Poor Arabic Readers.
Abu-Rabia, Salim
Reading Psychology, v16 n4 p351-94 Oct-Dec 1995
Examines relationships between phonological skills and reading in 143 Arab children in Arab villages of central Israel. Finds that a word recognition test was highly correlated with phonological skills, semantic processing, syntactic knowledge, and short-term memory, and that poor readers significantly lagged in skill development. Discusses similarities and differences between reading skills acquisition in Arabic and English. (RS)
