Beginning Word Recognition: Benefits of Training by Segmentation and Whole Word Methods.
Levy, Betty Ann; Lysynchuk, Linda
Scientific Studies of Reading, v1 n4 p359-87 1997
Compares effectiveness of four different methods for acquiring initial reading vocabulary--onset plus vowel, rimes, phoneme segmentation and blending, and simple repetition of whole words. Finds that beginning nonreaders acquired the trained words fastest in the onset and rime conditions, and most slowly in the whole word condition. Finds the same pattern of results for delayed readers in grade two. (RS)
