Phonological Processing in Printed Word Recognition: Effects of Age and Writing System.
Oney, Banu; And Others
Scientific Studies of Reading, v1 n1 p65-83 1997
Investigates whether readers of Turkish (which has a simple relation between spelling and sound) depend more on decoding for word recognition than readers of English (which has an "opaque" orthography). Suggests that readers become less dependent on phonological mediation with experience and that this reduction is more rapid for readers of opaque orthographies. (RS)
