The Learnability of the Alphabetic Principle: Children's Initial Hypotheses About How Print Represents Spoken Language.
Byrne, Brian
Applied Psycholinguistics, v17 n4 p401-26 Dec 1996
Examines the hypotheses about how print represents the speech that preliterate children select when they receive input compatible with several such hypotheses. Results indicate that most preliterate children do not select phonologically based hypotheses, but instead focus on morphophonology and/or semantic aspects of words' referents.
