Unresolved Mysteries: How Do Metalinguistic and Narrative Skills Connect with Early Reading?.
Roth, Froma P.; And Others
Journal of Special Education, v30 n3 p257-77 Fall 1996

Once children acquire initial decoding skills, narrative discourse and other metalinguistic skills were found to be potentially important. (DB)
