Letter Names Help Children to Connect Print and Speech.
Treiman, Rebecca; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v32 n3 p505-14 May 1996
Two studies examined young children's ability to name the first letter of spoken words, finding that although children were good at telling that "beech" and "beaver" began with "b," some stated that "wife" began with "y" and that "seem" began with "c." These errors reflect the letter names at the beginnings of the spoken words. (MDM)
