Morphographic Units in Dutch Polysyllabic Words: In Search of the Body of the BOSS.
Knuijt, Paul P. N. A.; Assink, Egbert M. H.
Scientific Studies of Reading, v1 n2 p99-117 1997
Searches for evidence of sublexical access units in Dutch as defined in terms of M. Taft's Basic Orthographic Syllabic Structure (BOSS) hypothesis and the Body of the BOSS (BOB) hypothesis. Finds no support for the presumed existence of an orthographically defined basic syllabic structure, functioning as a core unit in word and pseudoword identification. Discusses alternative explanations. (RS)
