Geva, Esther; And Others
Scientific Studies of Reading, v1 n2 p119-44 1997
Studies the development of accurate and fast reading processes in 66 children learning to read simultaneously in English and Hebrew. Finds that steps associated with development of English reading efficiency apply to the development of word recognition skills in Hebrew, and specific linguistic features may interact with more global Hebrew proficiency effects in determining Hebrew reading skills development.
