Fashola, Olatokunbo S.; And Others
American Educational Research Journal, v33 n4 p825-43 Win 1996
How Spanish-speaking children spell English words was studied with 38 Spanish-speaking and 34 English-speaking second and third graders. Spanish-speaking students produced more errors that were consistent with the correct application of Spanish phonological and orthographical rules (predicted errors). Implications for bilingual education are discussed. (SLD)
